Peer-Led Study Groups

L@s GANAS students serve as peer leaders in UIC’s Science Learning Center (Room 201 in the Science and Engineering South Building) and Mathematics Science Learning Center (Room 430 in the Science and Engineering Offices Building) These peer leaders facilitate study groups for L@S GANAS Scholars and for other UIC students who want to excel in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics.

Peer leaders will be at the UIC Science Learning Center and Math Learning Center at designated hours of the day. Students do not need to sign up for these sessions in advance.

We encourage you to attend the sessions on a weekly basis, as peer leaders will facilitate discussion and problem-solving related to course content from each week. Students in the group can request what material they would prefer the peer leader to focus on.

Peer Leaders will:

  • engage you in group collective learning process
  • review notes with you
  • review with you different problem-solving techniques
  • help you understand the material
  • provide you with study tips

L@s GANAS peer leaders have excelled in the courses they lead so they will provide you with a significant advantage. Research indicates students who participate in these study groups are more likely to do well in their challenging classes. The repetition and constant practice that is gained from attending these sessions can go a very long way.
