Open Orientation and Computer Lab

Most Tuesdays and Thursdays, Winona Adult Literacy will be offering an “Open Orientation and Computer Lab.” This Lab will be available to new students wanting to get started in our program, and for returning students who may need to reregister and retest. Current students can use the lab to work on their online assignments, work on digital literacy skills, and to post-test to see if they are ready for the actual GED tests. Labs will be held on Tuesday afternoons from 12:00-3:00pm, and on Thursday mornings from 9:00am-12:00.  Both days are at MSCS room 311 (1250 Homer Road).

Contact Chris Dahlke with questions or to check on the next available lab:, 508-494-0924, or the Community Education desk at 507-494-0900.
