Writing, Math & Physics Help!
 
The Writing Center offers “consultants who work with writers at all levels, from all disciplines, at all stages of the writing process. Whether you are brainstorming or organizing ideas or polishing a final draft, we look forward to discussing your writing with you. All forms of communication are welcome, from essays, lab reports and research papers to presentations, speeches, cover letters and personal statements.” Check out their site for instructions on how to meet with a consultant: https://www.unl.edu/writing/home
 
The Math Resource Center is a free tutoring service and is the primary facility for undergrad students who have questions about any pre-calculus or calculus course offered at UNL. No appointments are necessary! See their website for hours.
 
The Physics Resource Room offers assistance with introductory physics courses (including PHYS 151!) during the fall and spring semesters. Graduate students provide tutoring and homework help. Check out their site for their hours: http://www.unl.edu/physics/resource-room
 
Please remember, students in the College of Architecture must receive a grade of C or better to pass calculus and English composition. And architecture students must receive a grade of C or better to pass physics. (Interior design students using physics for their natural science elective must also pass physics with a C or better.)

We find ourselves in the fourth week of the semester and welcoming the month of February. As I am sure you are all aware, the Career Fair is just around the corner. It is a very important experience and great opportunity for our third and fourth year students. One group setting their sights on the required summer internship, the other taking those first steps towards becoming successful, employed professionals. I know that on top of your full course loads, refining your portfolio is persistently on your mind. Please feel free to email me and set up a time to review/edit your portfolio if you wish. I would be more than happy to work through any questions you might have. More-

As I write this piece and we shiver our way through the fourth week of the ‘spring’ semester, my thoughts of the spring seem very far away. Despite the lingering effects of our cold and snowy January, everyone is hard at work. Professor Cathy DeAlmeida has finished all her submissions for the CELA conference in March and Professor Sarah Karle is busy with her involvement in the university peer review on teaching work. Everyone in the college is also busy in their subcommittees with the latest strategic planning effort facilitated by Academic Leadership Associates. My committee is focused on external relations. Thinking about how the college can expand both its reach outside the college and participation from outside the college inside the college. More-

TAU SIGMA DELTA
Welcome to a brave new semester. As a college we will face refreshed challenges in the form of new classes and studios. To aid in these efforts, Tau Sigma Delta is excited to announce the re-launch of the ASK Help Desk.
The ASK help desk exists to help students realize their designs. ASK has assembled a panel of tutors who have skills ranging from digital modeling to presentation ability. The new ASK Help Desk format will directly match a volunteer tutor to a student in need of help. Tutors and students will set up a time and place to meet that is convenient for both.
 
For more information about the ASK Help Desk and the subjects it covers, please see the attached poster. If you need help from the ASK help desk, please email your question to:
