New PCC tutoring center aims to keep students in school, on track

Posted: Updated:
WINTERVILLE, N.C. - Helping your students succeed – that’s the goal of Pitt Community College's new tutoring center.

The 2,576-square-foot mobile units just opened this month behind the Clifton W. Everett Building on its campus in Winterville. Part of the center serves as an Academic Skills Lab, while another part houses math and writing centers.

School leaders say the new location gives them more space and flexibility after outgrowing a smaller classroom.

“All our services…are now centralized,” says Nicholas Vick, the director of the Tutoring and Academic Success Center. “TASC is designed to provide quality tutoring services to help students be successful. It is a key program that aids in student retention efforts across campus.”

The tutoring center cost $178,528 to build.  PCC paid for it with money from their Pitt County fund balance.

All services are free for students Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on Fridays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m..
