Introducing STUDY GROUP +1

Study Group +1 is an effective way to help CWRU students diversify and maximize their study time. This program is designed to enhance the learning experience for undergraduate students. Students can strengthen their understanding through discussion of course content in a peer tutor-supported study group of no more than 5 students. Study Group +1 can help students prepare for lecture, class discussion, a quiz or exam, or to work through a challenging homework assignment. Study Group +1 allows students to utilize their collective knowledge to achieve a shared academic goal: UNDERSTANDING! FMI or to request a peer tutor for your Study Group, visit Study Group +1.
