Supported Study Halls vs Walk-in Tutoring, here is how can you help students with this? 

Students are often unsure if they should consider walk-in tutoring or a supported study hall.  The answer is they can utilize both!

A friendly reminder the counseling center & DRES have initial consultations available in 206EH for our engineering students.  I have attached info for you to share with students who might benefit from connecting with either of these offices.
