Computers, GO Print Station & Textbooks
The LWC has four computers for all USF students to use while the Center is open. We also have a computer dedicated to the Rosetta Stone, where students can check out the program for free to help them learn Spanish or French. The LWC also has a wide array of textbooks (some of which professors use in their classes) that can also be checked out, to help with studying or further understanding of class material.
