The center opened in April, and since the fall semester students enrolled in lower-level math succeeded at a rate of 75 percent or higher.

The amount of calculus tutoring has more than doubled. Business calculus students set a record with a success rate of more than 85 percent, and calculus I students succeeded at a rate of 70 percent, surpassing the national average by 10 to 20 percent.

On average, students visited the center 1,600 times a week, producing more than 23,000 visits.

The center features 126 computers for online homework and lectures, 10 laptops for checkout, the opportunity to solve difficult problems with classmates and free personal tutoring.
