Peer-Led Undergraduate Study (PLUS)
PLUS is a drop-in group study program held Sunday afternoons in University residence halls. At PLUS, you can reap the benefits of group learning — deeper understanding through discussion and hearing other perspectives — and receive guidance with concepts and problems. Come with friends, form an impromptu study group, or work alone. Peer leaders who have done well in the PLUS courses are available to help.
For spring quarter 2017, PLUS will launch on Sunday, April 16th. Sessions run every Sunday through June 4th, from 3 to 5 pm, in the Shepard Engagement Center, B25. Snacks are always provided!
