Welcome to the LRC! We are located in 107 Breidenbaugh Hall.

Drop-in spaceDrop-in area

Do you want to hang out with other students learning a language? This is the place! Come do your homework, play board games, meet with your classmates, and get tutoring, all while sitting in comfy chairs and drinking tea. Did we mention that we have candy?

You can use the big screen TV to project the group presentation you're working on, write on the rolling whiteboards, or just use one of the PCs or iPads. Need privacy to record your voice or Skype with a native speaker of the language you're learning? Camp out in our small library with the door closed!
