F Is for Finals

News Story

The Tutoring Center isn’t going to try to put the fun in Fundamental Mathematics, but they’re going to try to help you take the “F” out of it. Plus, other end-of-semester reviews, Library extended hours, study spaces, and more.

You may be in denial, but finals are here. And it’s time to hit the books…and the resources.
