Quantitative Studies Center
The Quantitative Studies Center's mission is to increase academic success by helping students to become more effective and independent learners.
That mission is carried out through multiple programs and services that are provided free of charge for students, staff and faculty of Albion College.
Our services are designed to support Albion College students, staff and faculty in the following areas:
- math and statistics
- graphing calculators
- math anxiety
- graduate exam prep
- study strategies
The QSC also runs weekly study tables for various classes where students can meet with classmates and peer tutors to study, solve problems, or review the week's content.
The QSC is located near the Writing Center, in the Academic Skills Center. This is in the library, up one level from the circulation desk. The room number for the QSC is Mudd 307. If you have trouble finding us, come to the library and ask at the main desk.

The Academic Skills Center strives to help students improve their learning process, by gaining awareness of learning strategies and skills, and by assessing learning styles, strengths, time management, and other factors that affect learning.

Quantitative Studies Center
The Quantitative Studies Center (QSC) assists all students with services that focus on topics related to mathematics, economics, and the sciences. Students who want to increase performance in quantitative courses utilize QSC services including peer tutoring, study groups, and individual consultations. In addition, the QSC works to support students preparing for the quantitative portion of standardized exams such as the GRE, GMAT, and Michigan Test for Teacher Certification.
The Writing Center supports the entire college community. Peer consultants work one-on-one with student writers at every stage of the writing process—from initial brainstorming to writing drafts, and from organizing ideas to final editing. Writing Center consultants help students with writing taught in different academic disciplines, as well as other kinds of writing they might need to do while at college (e.g., cover letters for internships, résumés for job applications, personal statements for scholarships or graduate school). In addition, the director of the Writing Center, in consultation with the individual student, may plan a program of writing practice to meet the student's needs.
