Hear from Students

I feel like LARC was 100% worth it, especially as a new transfer. It’s made the transition much easier and helped me grow my confidence in Bio/ Ochem.

2023 - 2024 Student Evaluation

I love the community that has been created between me and my peers and how caring and supportive my leader has been. She has truly made me feel safe to ask any questions and has helped me understand the material so much better than the beginning of the quarter.

2023 - 2024 Student Evaluation

This was my first time at LARC and I am very glad I signed up. LARC was definitely a highlight of this quarter and I had a great experience with both my LARC leaders!

2023 - 2024 Student Evaluation

LARC is one of the best resources the campus has to offer. It makes you feel less scared about your classes and exams. It gives you a change of mindset on your study skills and your own personal abilities/skills. If it weren’t for LARC I definitely would not feel as confident about passing some of my classes.

2020 - 2021 Student Evaluation

I highly recommend enrolling in LARC! It has definitely helped me succeed in my courses and better prepare myself for future exams.

2020 - 2021 Student Evaluation

LARC helps me study the correct material for the exams and I get talk about the material with other students.
