Guided Study Groups

Got a big assignment coming up and don't know where to start? Need to collaborate with other students for a class project? Enjoy studying with a friend? Guided Study Groups are for you!

The peer mentor on staff will show you study and learning tools and teach you how to use them most effectively [PDF]. They can also help you map out your project or paper and help you learn how to brainstorm and research topics.


  • Where are the study groups located?
    On the ground floor of Halle Library in G09. Take the stairs or elevator downstairs, go through the double doors, and turn right (toward the Paradox cafe). G09 is about half-way down the hallway, next to the radio station and across from the restrooms.
  • When should I get there?
    Guided Study Groups begin on the hour, every hour, starting at 2 p.m. on Monday–Thursday. The last group will begin at 7 p.m. and end at 8 p.m. There are no Guided Study Groups on Friday, Saturday or Sunday.
  • Can I stay longer than an hour?
    Yes; peer mentors will scan your attendance at the beginning and end of each visit to Guided Study Groups.
  • Can I study with a friend or classmate?
    Absolutely! Students do not have to be in the Edge Program or be an athlete to attend, as long as they bring something academic to work on. This is a great opportunity to collaborate on a group project or quiz one another on upcoming exam material.
  • What if I don't have anything to do?
    You're a college student; there is always something to do. Your peer mentor can help you identify things to work on. However, if you arrive to study group without a planner or any course materials, you will be asked to leave and will not receive hours for that time.
