Although, Open Study hours change with each semester, if their doors are open, you are welcome to go in, settle yourself at a table, and work at your own pace through your course material. It’s great because small study groups are also welcome to use our area and the tables and chairs in the center. When you have butterflies right before a presentation, this is a great place to
