New Study Sessions for Finals

By Turner Vasil, Staff Writer

Finals Week is approaching quickly. Testing dates and times have been released and professors are assigning their final papers. As students panic during this time crunch, remember there is always the Writing Center to help with papers and tutors to help study.

This year, however, Academic Services has implemented some End of the Semester Study Sessions. These sessions began on November 5th, and continue on Wednesdays and Thursdays until December 4th.

Sessions are two hours long, from 6pm to 8pm, in Curtis 110. These are drop-in hours, meaning students may show up at any time for individual or group help.

“I think these sessions are a great idea.” says senior English major Angela Blum. “It shows us, especially the freshmen, that it’s never too late to ask for help.”

Many students often get in groups to study, but these sessions provide guidance which may help keep students focused.

According to Academic Services, tutors will be available for face-to-face help with a class or assignment for science, English, communications and social science classes.

Kaitlin Platti, a senior Criminal Justice major and Psychology minor, said, “I like the idea of it, but certain majors are overlooked. What about Nursing majors, or Freshmen who aren’t declared yet?”

Undeclared majors and students taking other courses can still come to the study sessions for quiet time or help with time management, organization, or study skills.

Academic Services is located in Curtis 109. Services include help with learning and organizational skills, individual tutoring, and help for students with disabilities. Tutors can be requested on on the Academic Services page under the Current Student tab. The office can also be reached by phone by dialing 610-606-4628 or by emailing them at
