Guided Study Sessions (GSS)

Take a proactive approach to your coursework: if you start your semester in Guided Study Sessions (GSS), you can more easily stay on top of the course material and requirements, rather than waiting until challenges come up or you get behind. GSS:

  • Are small study groups formed for difficult courses.
  • Are led by a student/peer who has advanced knowledge of how to succeed in the course.
  • Teach you basic study skills along with new material. You not only learn the material, but learn skills you can take with you into other courses.
