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!

See also our Academic Skills Workshops for additional group sessions.

Principles of Biology

Sign-up weekly for Bio Bits and Bio PTs to help you stay on top of the material, then attend a Study Slam (no rsvp required) for a fast-paced review of important points to remember for your exam!

Bio Bits

These are topic-specific mini-review sessions held weekly throughout the semester.  After each module, a Learning Assistant will cover some of the more complicated points in further depth during these sessions.

Sessions begin the week of February 3Click here for more information and to reserve your seat!

Please note that Bio Bits will not be held during the week of spring break. 

Bio PTs

In these sessions, ULC Learning Assistants guide you through multiple choice questions designed to help you engage in the material and test your understanding.  Different from Bio Bits, the focus here is not to provide a straightforward review of material covered in lecture, but rather to give you practice in testing or applying your knowledge and understanding of the principles you are learning each week. 

Sessions begin the week of February 3.  Click here for more information and to reserve your seat!

Please note that Bio PTs will not be held during the week of spring break.

Organic Chemistry

Organic Chemistry II PTs

Please note that Organic Chem PTs will not be held during the week of spring break.

Past workshops include:
  • Algebra & Calculus Review
  • Calculus I Review

Science Study Slams - Spring 2014

Held within the week before each major exam in the foundational science courses, Science Study Slams provide a fast-paced review of important points to remember before your tests.  These are not meant to be a substitute for long-term, comprehensive study plans, but are instead a quick rundown and refresher!
