Group Review

The University Learning Center hosts various course-specific group sessions and Study Slams that were developed at the suggestion and recommendation of our Learning Assistants, based on their own experience with these courses, as well as at the suggestion of students utlizing the resources at the ULC.  We welcome your suggestions on future workshops and group sessions to develop, or past workshops you'd like to see offered again!  Email us here!
