  • Virtual Study Rooms

    New this semester: virtual study rooms. Bring a friend, bring a study buddy, or come solo to the SAS Center virtual space and tell them you are there to study! The Front Desk worker will place you into a private room and the tutors will stop by when they have a moment to provide assistance. Join an existing study room or lock it down and make it a solo study space.
