The Math Place

Located in Hodges Library North Commons (on the second floor)

For all students taking 100 or 200 level math courses, we invite you to come to The Math Place. It is a great space for you to hang around and experience all things math. The Math Place is here to help you learn, grow, get your questions answered, do your homework and prepare for exams. Come and interact with other VOLS that are taking the same course as you, while being supported by undergraduates that have been successful in their math classes.

Note: We also support students in undergraduate classes outside the Math Department where the assistance needed is mathematical in nature.
