Cramming session before finals start

The Center for Academic Support will be hosting its regular end-of-semester Study Slam to help students make it through final exams.

The event will be held in the CORE May 13, from 3 to 9 p.m.

The center will be staying open two hours later so students can study in a place where they are comfortable and can get the help that they need.

“This is a cram session, so we are open later than our usual hours of closing at 7 p.m. It is the students last push before finals and everything is drop-in, so no appointment is required,” said CORE worker Sketch Choice.

Peer tutoring will be available for specialized subject tutoring such as biology, business, ETEC, Music, French and Psychology. Librarians will be available in the CORE as well to help students locate books they might need, and food and drink will also be provided for anyone who shows up.

Students will be able create their own study groups and stay for as long as they need to get help from tutors, CORE staff and reading and writing consultants. If students prefer to study alone, there will be room for those who choose to do so, but study groups can access them as well. Consultations will be 30 minutes long but tutoring will be available for as long as each student needs.

All students are encouraged to attend to get that extra push before finals.

“The study slam is fun. You can bring your friends and have a big study group, or just chill by yourself for a solo study session,” said CORE worker Christa Leach. “Not only that but there is free food for any participant.”

Whether students are high achievers or are struggling in certain subjects, the study slam is perfect to get any additional help.

With final exams coming up soon, the study slam is a good way to get that extra study session in before exams begin. For any question about the Study Slam, students can call the CORE at 473-7590.
