About Us

The academic center in the TAC showcases 26 desktop computers for use by student-athletes, tutoring services, is home to the Louisiana Tech Athletic Academic Advisors, as well as the hub for Life Skills and the SAAC (Student Athlete Advisory Committee). The Dog Pound has study tables, white boards, and furniture to help the student-athletes study, do homework, and excel academically.

The Center is open Monday-Thursday from 8-8, Friday from 8-2 and Sunday from 5-8 P.M. Tutoring is available to any student-athlete by appointment, set up through their Athletic Academic Advisors and their GradesFirst portal. Laptops are available to check out for use during team travel, and the installation of a Smart Board should be completed before Fall of 2016.
