The Commons

lap top showing varied online resources coming from the screenConnections for your students

Unlike the average 18-year-old of 1984, a first year college student in 2014 looks for answers online and not a card catalogue.

There are many online resources to help you help your students. 

Two services Lakeland subscribes to are Grammarly and e-Tutor. Check them out on our online student resources page.

Other sections of the Commons website have specific links to things such as online sleep and wellness assessments, found within wellness services.

There are also face-to-face helps, such as Lakeland College’s peer tutoring program and accessibility labs on both our campuses.

You may always stop by the Commons to learn more about our services, and as we do in the present, check online.
Grammarly arrow View
All Lakeland College students and staff now have access to Grammarly, an online automated grammar and revision tool for academic writing.

Grammarly is a web-based computer program application that works one-on-one with you to develop sentence-level writing skills, prevent plagiarism and reinforce proper revision habits. You can even check out the program for free.

But you have access to more as a Lakeland student. Stop by the Commons on either campus for an access code. Then, go to to set up your own account.

Once you have your own account, you upload drafts of your writing assignments to receive immediate instructional feedback on over 150+ points of grammar and double check if all sources are properly cited.

Peer Tutor Program arrow View
Your students have access to peer tutoring as well for free. Peer tutors take an online Peer Tutor Training course and get paid to help their fellow students. Please recommend strong students to become peer tutors and suggest to students who are struggling to come to the Commons to sign up for a peer tutor.
