Dear Parents,

In its fourth year at the Rosensweig Learning Commons, the Center for Teaching and Learning looks forward to increasing "foot traffic" as both students and faculty regularly utilize our services, all of which work toward satisfying a wide range of student interests and needs.

We offer a series of online Weekly Learning Tips for first-years. These provide first-year students with study strategies that ease the transition to college and connect them to the HWS community. For seniors and graduate students, we are continuing our Reader's College, "Generating a Thesis," which allows Honors and MAT students to support and enjoy one another's projects.

Our peer educators here at CTL, including the Teaching Fellows, Study Mentors, and Writing Colleagues, are vital to our success. They support many different departments on campus and help students with work ranging from problem sets to paper writing to time management.

The CTL is also dedicated to ensuring appropriate accommodation for students with disabilities, and we support Project Eye to Eye, a mentoring program that connects HWS students with Geneva School District students with learning disabilities.

Finally, we'd love for you to learn more about our annual Senior Symposium, which will take place on April 13, 2012. This experience provides seniors with a venue to share their research, independent projects, and intellectual passions, giving them a culminating experience for their academic career at HWS.
