GS students are encouraged to complete the GS Student Survey to help improve their student experience.

Students are encouraged to complete the GS Student Survey. The goal of this survey is to receive input from every current GS student and allow the entire student body to play a part in the ongoing plans to improve the GS-student experience. The survey asks questions related to all facets of the experience as a GS student, will take approximately 20-25 minutes, and can be completed all at once or in stages.

Students who complete the survey will be entered into lotteries to win one of three new iPads and one of 20 $25 Amazon gift cards. Names will be drawn every two weeks and non-winners will be re-entered into the lottery. The earlier the survey is completed, the greater the chance to win prizes!

To access the survey, please refer to the email you received from Dean Rosen-Metsch on the evening of Monday, April 16.

The School of General Studies Academic Resource Center (ARC) is hiring tutors.

Description
The ARC is dedicated to supporting the diverse nontraditional student body at GS in achieving academic excellence, and we could not do this without our talented staff of Columbia undergraduate, postbac, and graduate students.

At the ARC, our approach is 100 percent student-centered. We understand that every student comes into the University with unique educational and life experiences; our job is to provide the resources necessary to translate each unique resume into a successful Columbia experience. That’s true for the students we support, and it’s true for the student tutors, coaches, and administrative staff who join our team.

Our tutors are our front lines in supporting students in math, science, economics, and foreign languages. As a tutor, you would:

  • Provide academic support to students in specific subject areas, individually and in pairs
  • Facilitate larger recitation-style review groups
  • Assist students in developing good learning strategies and habits
  • Help alert GS students to other resources available to them
  • Increase your own mastery of the subject you tutor
  • Gain valuable professional development through regular training and close contact with ARC leadership

Tutoring is a challenging and rewarding experience. It requires dedication and a genuine interest in helping others through the learning process. It offers the chance to develop intellectually and professionally, and to make a real contribution to the Columbia community. If that is of interest, we sincerely hope you will apply.

The School of General Studies Academic Resource Center (ARC) is hiring tutors for the summer 2018 and fall 2018 semesters. The ARC is in need of tutors for the following subjects:

  • Biology

  • Calculus: Pre-calculus, Calc. I, II, & III
  • Statistics
