Thomas F. and Emma Staton Center for Learning Enrichment
The success of every student is the focus of everything we do.
The Staton Center, located on the first floor of Miriam Jackson Home, provides a wide range of academic support for success both during and after college, including tutoring, the Center for Writing and Critical Thinking, informal review sessions, academic counseling, instruction in study skills and time management skills, and the Grade Advocacy Program (GAP). These services are open to all students. The Center especially encourages students who are struggling in classes to come for help instead of trying to "do it on your own." The goal of the Staton Center is for every student to succeed.
The Staton Center is an Academic Enrichment program, along with the Honors Program, and is overseen by Dr. Chad Eggleston, assistant professor of religion and special assistant to the provost for academic enrichment.
The mission of the Staton Center for Learning Enrichment is to provide guidance and service to Huntingdon College students. It is our goal to give each student the advantage and opportunity to accomplish academic achievement while experiencing the satisfaction of success gained through learning.
