In the midst of another stressful week with the craziness that is term papers and multiple choice exams, here's a few study tips from the Internet: chew gum while test-taking to pump oxygen to the brain, listen to jazz music to "relieve boredom," and turn your course material into rhymes for ideal memorization.  If you do happen to have a free moment, however, please feel free to join us for any occasions below.  We can't promise A's on tests and papers, but we can offer a little bit of peace of mind.

Open Door Policy
We'd love to see how you're doing. To the extend that you are comfortable, please feel free to have your door open or cracked when you're home.
