The W.H. Thompson community encourages engaged student learning – and one resource that W.H. Thompson Scholars have access to is the Study Café/Tutor Lab. The W.H. Thompson Study Café provides scholars with complimentary snacks and beverages, including coffee, tea, hot chocolate, popcorn, and trail mix, while also offering a variety of quality study spaces. While at the Study Café, scholars have access to private study rooms (great for group projects or working with a study partner!), reading space, tables for homework space, and a computer lab.
The Study Café has other amenities as well – scholars have access to tutors through the W.H. Thompson Tutor Lab, and UNL library staff visit the W. H. Thompson Study Café on a bi-monthly basis to assist students with writing papers and completing research assignments. Some W.H. Thompson faculty members have also utilized the Study Café space to conduct extended office hours. The William H. Thompson Scholars Learning Community employs a group of highly-successful, well-trained peer tutors to assist our scholars. Our tutors are fellow undergraduates who are earning a 3.5 or better cumulative GPA and have earned As in the classes and subjects that they tutor. In 2016-2017, tutors will be available in a variety of subjects, with an emphasis on math and science. They are free of charge and ready to assist scholars with specific questions about course content as well as with general study tips and habits.
The Study Café/Tutor Lab is located on the first floor of Harper Residence Hall, and hours of operation for 2016-2017 school year are Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday 6-10PM.
The William H. Thompson Scholars Learning Community’s mission is to foster a sense of belonging, promote learning, increase engagement, and celebrate success. Recognizing the importance of meaningful relationships, we develop the voices of future leaders who will engage as active citizens in our local and global community. United by our varied experiences and diverse backgrounds, we discover our individual potential, the power of education, and the foundation for a better tomorrow.
