Student Learning Centre
The Student Learning Centre (SLC) is a new initiative at Heritage, the purpose of which is to equip students for the rigours of postsecondary education. The SLC offers a number of free services, including seminars on writing skills, research, time management and exam preparation. Targeted help is also available during drop-in hours as well as in focused study groups (e.g., Greek Grammar). College and Seminary students are encouraged to make use of these services. The SLC is located in the Academic Building, right next to the Library and the Seminary Lounge.

Student Learning Centre Coordinator
Jordan is currently pursuing a Master of Theological Studies (MTS) in the Seminary in hopes of moving on to a doctorate in the future and teaching at the Seminary level. He has earned a Bachelor of Religious Education from Master’s College and Seminary in Peterborough, ON, as well as a Diploma of Collegial Studies (DCS/DEC) in Mechanical Engineering Tech. at Dawson College in Montreal, QC. Jordan has extensive experience in helping students, having served prior in the Academic Success Centre at Master’s College and Seminary. With plans on being an author in the future, formatting and writing have become somewhat of a preoccupation to him, so he is thrilled to be able to help others in these matters.
Student Learning Centre Peer-Reader
My name is Joehelen and I am a fourth-year student in the BREP-Social and Family Ministries program. I enjoy sitting in coffee shops, travelling to new places, meeting new people, and trying new foods! Growing up, I did not see myself as a good writer. In fact, it was always a struggle to find the right words to express my thoughts. Through time, practice, and the help of others, I was encouraged to keep growing and improving my writing. My hope for this year is that I can help others do the same.
