CHEM 197: Portable Power: Academic Resource Center: Help with Writing, Speaking, Quantitative Reasoning

This guide has been created for Bridget Gourley's Fall 2021 FYS.

Getting help outside the libraries

Visit the Academic Resource Center website.

What is the Academic Resource Center? Its help with Writing (W), Quantitative Reasoning (Q), and Speaking and Listening (S). 

The ARC (in Asbury Hall, Room 115) is a place where you can get help with writing assignments, practice your public speaking skills and also get help with problem-based courses like math, chemistry, and economics. 

As you work on class assignments, big and small, you can meet with W, Q, and S consultants, who are ready to provide practical suggestions, feedback, and encouragement.  You may meet with a consultant for advice about all sorts of assignments:

  • essays
  • problem sets
  • oral presentations
  • research projects
  • homework
  • academic skills in general

In Fall 2021, all Centers will offer in-person appointments, as well as a small number of online sessions for students who are unable to travel to campus.  To sign up for an online appointment with a tutor, visit
