William H. Thompson Scholars Study Cafe and Tutor Lab

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, and tables for homework. 

The Study Café has other amenities as well – scholars have access to tutors through the W.H. Thompson Tutor Lab, and UNL Writing Center staff visit the W. H.Thompson Study Café on a weekly 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. Tutors 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 are Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday 6-10 PM. Also, be sure to check out other tutoring services available below.
