Writing (W), Quantitative Reasoning (Q), and Speaking and Listening (S).
During Fall 2020, this welcoming locale will be online.
As you work on class assignments, big and small, you are invited to meet virtually with W, Q, and S Consultants and ARC Advisors, who are ready to provide practical suggestions, feedback, and encouragement. You may meet with a consultant for advice about all sorts of assignments:
- problem sets
- oral presentations
- research projects
- academic skills and time management
If you have questions, feel free to write to any of the staff members listed on the left hand menu. We look forward to talking to you.
