Speaking of Finals, how are you feeling about your grades right now? Free tutoring, workshops and supplemental instruction are available through the Learning Resource Center located on the 10th floor of the W.E. B. DuBois Library. Call 413-545-5334 or, better yet, go there in person to explore the range of services offered. To check out their tutoring and/or supplemental instruction schedules for Spring 2013, go on-line to www.umass.edu/lrc/. If you are having trouble understanding some of your course material, you should first arrange to meet with your professor or T.A. By asking for help early on and coming prepared with questions/concerns, you can maximize the chances that they really will be able to assist you before you fall too far behind.
The Writing Center is also ready to serve your needs! Make an appointment and get help during any part of the writing process.
And, as always, you can meet with Peer Advisors in the Academic Advising Link or make an appointment to meet with an Undergraduate Advisor to talk about majors, academic issues, and where to go to access the information you need to succeed.
