 Marshall celebrates grand opening of Towers Learning Center
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - Marshall University celebrated the grand opening of the Towers Learning Center, a new academic support resource for students, with a ribbon cutting today in the Twin Towers East lobby on Marshall's Huntington campus.

The center was developed to provide late-night, peer tutoring and mentoring to first-year students. The facility has up-to-date technology and ample space for study groups and academic programs. Faculty-in-residence and student academic mentors will staff the center.

"This is a very important event recognizing a resource initiative for and on behalf of our students," said Marshall President Dr. Stephen J. Kopp. "Hopefully, this is the start of something that will continue to grow around campus. We have an absolute commitment to the success of our students - every student. We are pleased to provide these types of opportunities for our students. I commend the residence hall staff, the student mentors and the support staff for bringing this project to fruition."

The center is open to all Marshall students not just those living in Towers East. The student academic mentors will staff the Towers Learning Center from 5 to 11 p.m. Monday-Thursday. At all other times, students can check out the key at the front desk of Twin Towers East.

The center has a number of resources available to students, including:
-          SMART board
-          Computer
-          Printer
-          General education books
