Peer Support Programs


Students at GSS


Guided Study Sessions

Take a proactive approach to your coursework: if you start your semester in Guided Study Sessions (GSS), you can more easily stay on top of the course material and requirements, rather than waiting until challenges come up or you get behind. GSS:

  • Are small study groups formed for difficult courses.
  • Are led by a student/peer who has advanced knowledge of how to succeed in the course.
  • Teach you basic study skills along with new material. You not only learn the material, but learn skills you can take with you into other courses.

Writing Fellows

Writing Fellows are trained peer writing tutors assigned to work with students in a specific writing intensive class. These students, who are usually in the same discipline and have taken the class before, serve as a second set of eyes who will read your writing and make constructive suggestions for revision. Fellows do not grade, correct, or judge papers.
