Support/Success

How do I get a tutor?

Tutoring and study skills workshops are offered by the Student Success Center. Their office is located in McIver 104.

Is it important to get to know professors? What are office hours for?

It is always useful to get to know your professors. Professors keep office hours, and the times and locations will be on your syllabus, usually distributed on the first day of class. Office hours are a good time to discuss ideas generated in class, to clarify assignments, and to share common enthusiasms with professors. Eventually, you may well be asking professors for letters of recommendation, and strong, specific letters require that your professor know you as well as your work.

What jobs, internships, and opportunities are available for this major?

The Career Center (#1 EUC) can help by providing information on numerous jobs available for any given major. You are also encouraged to get experience prior to graduation through internships and volunteering.
