Services We Offer
The Jensen SAS Center is committed to meeting students' needs by offering individual tutoring and mentoring, academic and career workshops, and resources designed to encourage student success. We offer the following services to all students in the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics (CNSM).
Free drop-in tutoring is available for all students in CNSM courses.
SAS Peer Mentors serve as ambassadors of their college by mentoring and tutoring STEM freshmen and transfer students during the academic year, and participate in the planning and implementation of other student and family events.
With a referral from their academic advisor, CNSM students may partake in one-on-one tutoring and mentoring with a SAS Peer Mentor free of charge. For a minimum of 6 hours a semester, students will have each meeting tailored to their specific needs including private tutoring for CNSM courses, guidance on note-taking and study skills, advice on getting involved on campus, and personalized mentoring.
The G2 Computer Lab is open to undergraduate and graduate students in the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics. The G2 Computer Lab is designed specifically to allow CNSM students improved access to cutting edge technology and its additional resources to aid in the progression of their educational and professional development.
