IMPORTANT NOTE TO STUDENTS:  Regularly scheduled GSG sessions end the last week of classes (April 28-May 1).  Be sure to check your course email and listen to in-class announcements for review session times by leaders, TAs and/or faculty.  Best wishes on your final exams!

Spring 2014:  Regularly scheduled GSG sessions are up and running.  For immediate assistance in your course, be sure to consult your faculty and TA during office hours or visit department resource rooms (e.g, Physics Resource Room, Chemistry Resource Room, etc.).  

Guided Study Groups (click here for current schedule)

Tutorial assistance for these courses can be obtained by participating in Guided Study Groups (GSG) in fall and spring semesters.  GSG sessions are free and are led two to three times a week by an undergraduate peer leader, who has previously met success in the course.  Click on the “Study Groups” tab for detailed information.
