So, we’re a little biased, but our first recommendation: get to know the Pollak Library!  Not only are the reference librarians waiting to help you with your research, the library is where you will find our print book collections, government documents, audiovisual  and curriculum materials.  The Library’s website ( is your gateway to access online databases and ebooks, and even receive reference help via instant message and 24/7 chat. If you’re looking for a tutor, visit the University Learning Center (2nd floor north), and if you need help writing a paper, visit the Writing Center (1st floor north). On the first floor of the south side of the library, you will find the TitanCard desk, where you can receive you TitanCard, put money on your TitanCard, and even get your TitanCard activated for free transportation via the Orange County Transit Authority (OCTA).

Make sure to take care of yourself, physically and emotionally. Visit the Student Health and Counseling Center!  The Student Health and Counseling Center offers a wide array of services to help keep you in good health. Aside from general health services, they also offer physicals, immunizations, and optometry and pharmacy services. The Counseling Center offers confidential counseling services to students as well as free workshops on a variety of topics.

Another cool place to hang out is the courtyard between the Visual Arts buildings. Peruse the various sculptures and get a little culture during your between-class break! Did you know that there are also other sculptures all over campus? Find a guide for them here.
