Ancell Commons Opportunities
Introducing our new program: JLA Mornings!

Want to improve your academic outcome? We have two excellent JLA Peer Educators available this semester – Tashai and Allison. Tashai works during our busier times so we recommend that students make an appointment to work with her. Allison works during a traditionally quiet time and so we are introducing the programs below.

We are not just a remedial resource. We help good students become better. New Drop-In Opportunities to Excel in JLA:

  • Study Tables: Come in and study in the Commons on Tuesdays (9 am to 12:30 pm) and Thursdays (9 am to 11 am). If you have questions, just let Allison know and she will be happy to guide you.
  • Search Strategies and JLA Research: Need help with search strategies and research? How do you know which sources to trust and what to pull from each source? Allison can show you how to search and research more effectively, how to determine whether a source is reliable and what information might best help you make your point, and she can work with you to review the sources you have chosen for reliability.
  • Case Brief Review: Allison will work with you to make sure your case brief meets professor requirements. Bring the requirements with you!
  • There’s an App for that! Drop in to talk to Allison about tools/apps you can use to excel in your JLA courses.
Club Events and News

Special Events
Volunteers are needed for the CT Financial Reality Fair which will take place at WCSU in the Westside Campus Center on Wednesday, November 14 2018.
This is a great opportunity to do some service work to help high school students gain an understanding of what it means to make their own money decisions. These high school students will be given a salary based on their desired occupation, and have to make financial decisions throughout the fair.
This event is something that is fun, and helpful for students to be able to react to real life situations.
Volunteers are needed starting at 7:45 am for orientation. The event will begin at 8am and run until about 12pm.
Breakfast and refreshments will be served to all volunteers in the morning. If you or someone you know is interested, please contact event coordinator and WCSU alum Alyssa Angurio at
