History Help Room

The History Help Room is held in Olin 317 and assists students with reading, writing, citations, research, and study skills.

Two nights a week the History Help Room will be open for students in any history course. Staffed by tutors who have previously excelled in these classes, help rooms provide a place to ask questions, work through practice problems, and discuss study strategies. Help rooms work best when they are regularly attended and you should feel free to do homework and study in the History Help Room when it is open—that way you can ask the tutor a question if you get stuck! If you are going to the help room to ask a question, try answering the question yourself first and bring all necessary course materials with you. All campus help rooms are free to use as often as you want.
