Study Halls

Incorporating regular, focused study sessions into your schedule will keep you on track to ace all of your assignments and exams. FYE Study Halls are open to all CLC students. They are held twice a week and offer a quiet, friendly atmosphere that includes help from tutors, laptop and printer access, and free healthy snacks. You can also win prizes every time you show up, and you will be entered into our monthly drawing where you could win a Tablet!

Game Nights

If you ever want to kick back and relax with friends, meet new people, grab a snack, and play your favorite video or board games, then come to an FYE Game Night! Our most popular titles include Halo, Call of Duty, Super Smash Brothers, Guitar Hero, Mario Kart, Jenga, and Trivial Pursuit. Our range of titles is expanding and we will occasionally hold tournaments. We also encourage you to bring your own gaming systems, controllers and games. Come out and have a blast!
