LIke your pun  :-)  We are also in the throes of blending our "developmental" (college-prep) tutoring, learning lab, and assorted other elements.  Right now I'm tutoring developmental students in our own room wtih a small computer lab; one of our concerns here is that the feeling of security; many of our regulars say they feel squirmy going into peer tutoring because they hate asking arithmetic questions when "everybody" else is doing Calculus.  

I have more sympathy than advice... now I've got to tackle some of the paperwork I've got to do for this!

We are in the throws of blending our existing services into one more
comprehensive facility. We will be retrofitting an existing building on
campus and hope to use this move to help develop the support for
students on campus.

We presently have 4 separate centers that provide the following kinds
of support:
1)College prep classes in reading and English skills that have a lab
component, 
2)all math tutoring, chemistry, and physics on a drop-in basis, 
3)accounting support on a drop-in basis housed in the math center
4)a writing center that blends walk-ins with their appointment
structure and 
5)CLAST support
We presently have almost 100,000 visits a year to the separate
centers.

We would like to know if anyone out there has a center that deals with
these areas (and more). We would really like some information about
1)how the blending works, how are the different disciplines housed
together,
2)how it is managed, 
3)what other services you provide and why,  
4)what would you add if you could,
5)would you be open to a visit?

The administration is really excited about this move and we would like
to use it to make sure that the students get even better services and
that nothing is lost that is already working.

Thanks so much for any responses!!!
