The Physics Learning Center (PLC) is a supportive learning community for studying physics. Students have access to many different resources in the PLC, including study materials, exam review sessions, small-group learning teams, and help finding study partners. All PLC activities are led by trained peer tutors and staff, and our services are free of charge. Unlike other learning centers you do not have to join a learning team (a “group”) to take advantage of our other resources.
