Advising Questions

Stop by your adviser's office hours. If you don't know who your adviser is, but you know he's in the Department of Philosophy, there's a list of advisers and advisees posted outside the department office door. Still need help? See our all-knowing and all-powerful secretary Mindy.

Tutoring and Misc. TLC

Struggling in a philosophy class? The Learning Center, which is in the Reed Library, 4th floor, has free drop-in tutoring, staffed by accomplished Philosophy Majors. Better yet, stop by your professor's office hours.
