If you’re having difficulties with your classes, remember that there are many resources on campus to help you:
- The Math Activity Center, located in 351 Hyde (535-2581), has a tutoring schedule as well as a study area where you can work independently until you need help.
- The Writing Center, located on the lower level of Lamson (535-2831), can help with everything from an English paper to a resume.
- The Plymouth Academic Support Services (PASS) Office, located in Lamson (535-2270) offers tutoring, learning skill development, and services for students with disabilities.
- Tutors are also available for help with particular psychology classes (e.g., Statistics). Information regarding these tutors is typically posted on flyers throughout the 4th floor of Hyde.
- The Counseling and Human Relations Center, located just east of Hyde Hall (535-2461), offers free counseling services and stress-management workshops for students.

Many students expect that their study strategies from high school will translate to their college classes, but this is often not the case. I encourage you to watch ALL of the videos with special attention to the 4th video!
