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!

      The PIN numbers will change each time, so be sure to check your email when you're ready to ask questions. If you join one video call and the TA is working through a problem you don't need help with, you can either wait it out, or you can jump to the other TA's video call to see if they're available to assist you or if they're already working on a problem you need help with.
