Physics Learning Center (PLC)

The Physics Learning Center (PLC) provides a supportive learning community for studying physics and opportunities to find study partners. Students work together in small-group learning sessions to practice problem solving and discuss key concepts in a supportive learning environment. Study groups meet twice each week and are led by trained peer tutors and staff.   We also offer access to extra study materials and exam review sessions.
