Support for Students

Chemistry is both a challenging and rewarding field to study.  To help all of our students succeed, we offer many different types of support to them:

  • Office hours - You'll find our office doors open much of the day.  Students come alone or in groups to office hours.  If they can't attend office hours, other chemistry faculty teaching the same course are usually available as well.  Students often can set up additional times for faculty assistance.
  • Tutors are assigned to individual sections of our first course, CHEM 125. Faculty will announce in their classes the names of their assigned tutors and the day, time and place they are available.
  • Informal faculty help sessions at night - Faculty are available on Tuesday night, 6:30-8:00 PM at O'Connell's , a coffee house in the Haehn Campus Center which provide a relaxing atmosphere to meet and discuss chemistry.
