Excel Science Center

Welcome to the Science Center

Message from the Director

We help all students excel! If you take lower-level courses in Chemistry, Physics, or Biology, the Science Center offers free, unlimited drop-in tutoring, scheduled problem-solving sessions (EI sessions), computers, and other resources to help you do well. We even help with many upper-level classes as well--ask us about specific courses. Check out our tutoring schedule. Learn more about our caring and knowledgeable staff. Even if you don't need tutoring, the Center is a great place to meet friends, study, eat your lunch, and just relax. Come visit us.

My office is in the Science Center and my door is always open. You're welcome to drop by anytime. I can help you with advising for course work, and we can talk about your career goals or anything else you want. Perhaps you would like to work in the Science Center.

The Excel Science Center is located in Centennial Hall 204, and my office is in the southwest corner of the Center. Let's talk.

Dr. Jerry L. Phillips
