Group Study Opportunities

Heard the saying, “Two heads are better than one”? Find out for yourself. Work with your peers in one of many ASC- and department-sponsored group study sessions.

In a relaxed environment, these student-led, question and answer sessions provide you with encouragement and support while permitting you to come and go as needed. Remember, all ASC services are free!
