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!

Science Study Slams - Fall 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!
