Alabama Southern is committed to doing its part in assisting students with meeting their educational goals. In the 2013 Spring Term, ASCC implemented two new student success centers, which are designed especially with students in mind. These centers provide an environment for students to engage in study groups, assist their peers through tutoring, and much more. Alabama Southern is very proud of these recent additions to both the Thomasville and Monroeville Campuses.
