Women in Science and Engineering Tutoring Program

The College of Science and the College of Engineering Tutoring Program is excited to be offering services in the University Residences Support Center (URSC) on the bottom floor of Shreve. You can find us in the Small Conference Room (C123). You can find us from 7-10 PM, Sunday through Thursday. The Tutoring Program is in place to assist all in Science and Engineering. The tutors are trained upper-level honors students in Science and Engineering who have applied to work with beginning students. The goal of this program is to teach beginning students transferable learning skills which will aid them throughout their college career.
