The learning Resource Center. I find it the most useful outside of class instruction. It's invaluable.

The Learning Resource Center. It is a quiet place to study, with people to help me understand what part of my class studies I am having trouble understanding.

If I tell you where my favorite place is, people might take it. It's not the orange chairs in the C-tech building, so don't even try checking those out because they are terrible.

The Learning Resource Center. I find it very helpful and a very peaceful atmosphere, and it's a great resource for use in Homer at this campus.

The welding shop because I've made a lot of friends here. It's kind of fun getting to come in and weld with friends, and try to make your welds look better than your buddies; so there's some friendly competition.

The library because it is quiet and we have private rooms and great resources.
