Welcome to the KEYS Program Learning Hub!
The Learning Hub provides you with the tools necessary to be successful in your college experience. We believe that a student can grow educationally and personally; this view of the student as a whole is key in each of our activities. As a person, a student has many factors affecting their learning. They may be the smartest student, but, without proper guidance, their efforts are fruitless. There is more to college than just attending classes; you must fully immerse yourself in the experience.

Wherever personal or academic development is needed for you we can help through workshops, tutoring, advising, or mentoring. Please visit our offices at AWC in the 3C Building, just above Starbucks.
