“We’re here to help”

This week, the Center for Academic Achievement has begun accepting Fall appointments. From tutoring and academic coaching, to supplemental instruction, the Center supported almost 1,100 La Salle students last year. Said one tutor: “We’re here to help one another.” Find out about the Center’s academic resources—and how to leverage them.
