Guided Study Group (GSG) sessions will begin during the week of September 8th (after the Labor Day holiday weekend). Listen to in-class announcements and revisit this web site for the GSG semester schedule. Sessions are free and are available each week. Also, please consult your faculty and TAs during office hours and visit department resource rooms for assistance (e.g., Chemistry Resource Room in 211 Whitmore or Physics Learning Resource Center in 207 Osmond).
GSG SESSION UPDATES (alpha order by course name):
ATTENTION BIOL 110 Students: Beginning on Sunday, October 11, Kyle (GSG Leader) will host only two sessions each week. One will be held on Sundays from 6:00-7:30pm in 109 Boucke and on Tuesdays from 6:00-7:30pm in 109 Boucke. Make note of the extended session time period. Kyle will no longer facilitate a session on Thursday evenings.
ATTENTION CHEM 210 Students: Beginning on Sunday, October 11, Natalie (GSG Leader) will host only one GSG session each week. This session will be held on Sundays from 3:00-5:00pm in 102 Forum. Due to our inability to secure lecture halls to accommodate the larger attendance for her study sessions, we will suspend / cancel Natalie's Monday and Wednesday evening sessions for the remainder of the fall 2015 semester.
ATTENTION PHYS 212L Students: Beginning on September 17th Sydney's (GSG Leader) Thursday sessions will be changed from 4:15-5:30pm (203 Sackett) to Thursdays 7:00-8:30pm in 106 Osmond.
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.
