Fall 2014 Academic Resources

The Office of Academic Enrichment provides a number of resources that can provide help to students who are struggling, as well as to those who are successful and looking for ways to sharpen their skills.

TUTORING

  • Individual Tutoring.  We are happy to announce that you now can hire our individual tutors online!  Undergraduate tutors are available for $13.00/hr; graduate tutors are $16.00/hr.
  • Drop-In Tutoring.  Two hours a day, five days a week, drop-in tutoring is available in math, chemistry and physics.
  • Group Tutoring.  Free group tutoring in a number of courses is offered each semester.  Groups are formed in response to student requests.

STUDY SKILLS ASSISTANCE

  • Workshops at the OAE.   We appreciate your posting our workshop schedule where it will be visible to students visiting your department; feel free to make as many copies as you wish.
  • Online workshops:  Your Roadmap to Success (http://www.udel.edu/AEC-workshop/).  These workshops are designed to help students identify skill areas they need to improve in, to practice new techniques, and to evaluate their progress.
  • Study Skills course (UNIV113).   This one-credit pass/fail course includes comprehensive coverage of strategies for successful studying, which are then put to use in a concurrent “target class” of the student’s choice.  While the course is aimed at freshmen and sophomores, exceptions can be made for other students when needed. Only a few seats left!
  • Academic Intake appointments. Any student can meet with one of our staff members to assess his/her current study strategies and develop a plan for strengthening those strategies.  In particular, students in academic difficulty can benefit from this one-on-one academic counseling.

The OAE Newsletter provides a quick overview of offerings.  For more details on OAE programs, visit our website.

Take Back the Tap Interest Meeting

This Thursday, September 25 at 5pm in Sharp Lab 123, there will be an interest meeting for a new RSO here on campus, Take Back the Tap.

Take Back the Tap is a national organization dedicated towards the conservation of our natural water supplies through the drinking of tap water versus bottled water.  As a RSO in the making, we are open to any and all suggestions and welcome anyone to come.  As of now, our current goal is to get more filtered water bottle stations installed around campus. Future goals include the banning of giving out free water bottles during university-sponsored events and ultimately the complete banning of selling water bottles on campus.

If this sounds like something you would be interested in but have questions, feel free to email tbtt@gmail.com or visit our Facebook Page.

Penn Vet Panel- Hosted by the Animal Science Club

CANR students,
Hey all!
My name is Jess Austin, current pre-vet chair for the Animal Science Club.
I highly encourage you all to come out October 1st for our annual Penn Vet Panel hosted by the Animal science Club!!! Of course, anyone can attend whose interested. The more people the merrier!

For those who are interested in applying to vet school, or pursuing a graduate career in animals science, will have the opportunity to ask current vet school students anything you want! Whether you may be curious about the admissions/application process, scheduling, classes, professors, work load, or time management, they will be able to answer your questions. Remember that these students have gone through the process themselves, so you are getting the best advice and feedback. Take advantage of this opportunity because we only hold this event once a year!

We invited six UD alumni currently attending Penn’s College of Veterinary Medicine. We are excited to have Jessica Applebaum, Jen Masucci, Megan Clark, Caitlin Gormley, Stephanie Polukis, and Holly Powers come out! Without them, this event wouldn’t be possible.

The Panel will start at 6:30 in Gore 318 and we are opening it up to anyone who is interested in attending and having their questions answered. There is the possibility that the panel will actually be in Gore 205, but for now it is still going to be Gore 217. We’ll update everyone on a room change if and when we need to.

Mark your calendars everybody! This is going to be BIG and you don’t want to miss out!!!
I hope to see you all there!
Jess
