Located on the second floor of the Vogel Library, the Peer Learning Lab is a free, collaborative peer-to-peer learning service available to all Wartburg students to help improve their writing, speaking, mathematical, reading, and critical thinking skills. Our specially-trained peer consultants can help you at any stage of the process. Be sure to bring your coursework with you for your session. Vensimple, Hawkes Learning Software, and Minitab are installed on the Vogel Library laptops and are available for check-out.
