Help Room Hours (BPS 1248)

Starting Spet 2, the Strosacker helproom is in 1248 BPS and is open from 9:00AM to 9:00PM Monday through Thursday and from 9:00AM to 6:00PM on Fridays. You are welcome to go to the helproom during any of its open hours but there will be appointed times when TAs specifically for PHY232/232C will be available.

Strosacker help room staffed with PHY 232/232C TAs beginning the week of Sept 2. Hours:

I recommend that you spend at least one hour in the help room each week, preferably working with other students in study groups. The TAs for the course are there to assist you and aid you in working through our assignments. However, this does not mean solving class assignments for you.
