Hope everyone had a great spring break! Here’s a quick update of all the new and exciting changes that have been happening around the center:
- The center has a new makeover. If you haven’t seen the new updated look, come on by!
- The LWC is hosting a GRAND GIVEAWAY! All you have to do is follow and like us on all our social media sites. At the end of the semester, we will include the names of all our new likers and followers into a raffle and will choose the winner of a new apple product. If you like and follow us on all three social media sites, then your name will be included three times. So make sure to follow us and spread the word.

- Peer Led Team Learning (PLTL) will now be available for Organic Chemistry.
“The Peer-Led-Team-Learning (PLTL) model consists of study groups of six to eight students facilitated by a student (peer) leader….engages undergraduates in methods of group study,…improves students’ problem-solving skills, communication, and provides … active-learning. Groups meet once a week during the semester for a two-hour workshop. The PLTL leader does not help solve the problems with the students …, but guides and encourages them …No answer is given to the students; the students are to learn to decide as a group whether the answer is correct or not. This allows the students to gain more confidence in deciding when a problem is solved correctly, which is essential for performing well on quizzes and exams.“
This is a great resource to any student taking this rigorous course. If you have any questions about the program, stop by the LWC at Cowell 215 and we can answer your questions.
That’s all for now. Have a good rest of the semester! Brace yourselves, finals is coming up. But that also means SUMMER.
