Labs and Study Spaces

  • PENN 215
    In addition to tutoring, this room offers a quiet study space, Windows computers, printing services, and an interactive whiteboard. The whiteboard is Bluetooth-compatible and is great for group collaboration. The tables can be reconfigured for study groups.  
  • PENN 241
    In addition to tutoring, this room offers an exploratory space where students can use a Linux computer, a Bluetooth-enabled interactive whiteboard, a 3D printer, an RFID kit, Raspberry Pi, Oculus Rift, and more. All students are welcome to explore. Not sure how to use some of the technology? Ask a tutor.

Academic Advising & Career Guidance

All computing majors and minors have a Department of Computing Sciences full-time faculty member who serves as an academic advisor. Faculty advisors provide advice related to degree requirements and career guidance.

All CCU students must work with their academic advisers in order to register for classes. At the start of each semester, a registration hold is placed on your account. Once you get in touch with your adviser, that hold is lifted and you are able to register for classes.
