Please Note - Absence Policy:  Although participation in the SLC Study Group Program is voluntary, students must make a commitment to attend regularly and actively participate in the study group once they have registered. Therefore, study group members who miss two consecutirve meetings or three total meetings will be dropped from the study group in order to allow students on the waitlist to join. Absences for academic and religious conflicts are excused. However, please note that extracurricular activities including student groups, club sports and sorority or fraternity events are not considered academic conflicts. Members who are dropped for non-attendance will not be permitted to re-enroll in the same study group.

Here's What Some of Our Members Have Said...

"Geoffrey created the perfect study group environment. All the members work together to solve tough problems, and he only directed questions to others. Every person was able to contribute/ participate/ learn because of the way the discussion was facilitated and not taught." —Study Group Member, Fall 2008

"Tiffany was great! Her worksheets were very helpful, and she made sure she was not just feeding us answers, but instead helping us to think about problems as a group.  I would definitely recommend her!" —Study Group Member, Winter 2009
