Special Sessions

To provide an additional resource for students in some courses without discussion sections, we are offering weekly special sessions for one hour in the evenings. During these sessions, students can ask homework questions, go over notes/examples from class, and have a space to collaborate with their classmates outside of the Math Lab's drop-in tutoring. All sessions will take place in the Math Tutorial Lab.
