ARC Syllabus Blurb

The Academic Resource Commons (ARC) is Bates’ Learning & Writing Center. ARC is a place to do the work of being a student. Join us to study, write papers, and do your homework, surrounded by other students working on the same thing and by tutors: your fellow Bates students who have been through the courses that you’re taking now and have insight to share on how to excel in them. ARC offers in-person and online tutoring for writing, the sciences, languages, note-taking, time management, study habits, and much more. For more information, tutoring hours for all subjects, and upcoming workshops, visit us at To make an appointment with a tutor, or for any question on our services, please stop by the ARC front desk (located on the first floor of Ladd Library) or click on the “Chat with ARC” button on our website homepage.
