GSG Spring 2016:
Regularly scheduled GSG sessions are up and running. See schedule below. Also, review your course syllabus and listen to in-class announcements for session times, locations, schedule or exam review updates. Be sure to consult your faculty, TAs or learning assistants during office hours and visit course related resource rooms such as the Chemistry Resource Room (New Location: 114 Whitmore) or the Physics Learning Resource Center (207 Osmond).
PHYS 211L: Beginning Sunday, February 14th, Jacob's (GSG Leader) sessions will meet on Sundays (4:00-5:30pm in 216 Boucke) and Wednesdays (6:00-7:30pm in 011 Life Sciences).
GSG EXAM REVIEWS (alpha order by course):
CHEM 210: Sunday, February 21st from 6:30-8:30pm in 105 Forum with Natalie (GSG Leader). Note: Natalie's 3:00-5:00pm session will not meet on this afternoon.

Tutorial assistance for the courses below can be obtained by participating in Guided Study Groups (GSG) during the 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.
