Here are our top resources and recommendations for furthering your success in your Computer Science courses!
We highly encourage you to connect with your professor and attend office hours first! Professor office hours are often posted on the front of the syllabus, and they can serve as a great entry point to discussing how you are doing in the class and how to make productive changes in the way you study moving forward.
2. Computer Science Department Tutoring
The Computer Science Department has a robust tutoring offerings for students in COMP 125, 150, 163, 170, and 271 among other classes, too! Tutoring is held at various times in the Doyle Center Garden Level during the fall and spring semesters. For times of tutoring and more information, visit, https://www.luc.edu/cs/schedules/tutoringhours/.
3. STEM Center
We recommend you go over to the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Center located in Centennial Forum underneath Mertz and study! Faculty and TA office hours, the Tutoring Center's STEM SI sessions, student organization tutoring sessions, such as Math and Physics Club, and informal group study sessions take place within the STEM Center. You can go and find a table to study with other students taking similar classes!
4. Success Coaching
Want to further develop your time management, test taking strategies, and overall study skills? Meet one-on-one with a Success Coach, who are training graduate students that can help take your academic success to the next level!
