To get started, students will attend an orientation and meet with an instructor to discuss their goals.
To log in and use the Reading Lab, students will need four things: 1) their PIN, 2) their SID, 3) their BC Net user name, and 4) their password.
2) Reading Workshops & NewsTalk
An opportunity for students to learn effective, flexible strategies for college-level reading in a lively group environment.
All are welcome!

Instructors may refer students to the Reading Lab to come as a “guest” for 10 free visits, without needing to register for the class. Students are welcome to ask for a referral from instructors and advisers as well.
