Several resources on campus offer support for students to link up with college academic groups: peer groups, tutors, counselors, and mentors. During week 9, have students (either individually or in small groups) research information on one of the following campus resources. They can review materials on the web links below, or, even better, you can have them visit the site to collect information, including brief interviews with one or more representatives of the campus resource. During week 10, spend 10-15 minutes having individuals and/or groups report their information back to the class. You may wish to have students write up their findings in a 250-500 response paper, as in Activity A2 on the Link Up Activities page.
