Friday, November 16th from 1-3 p.m. – Cite Right: Citing and Writing for University Courses
So many sources, so little time! How do you find good sources and use them in your writing so you earn top marks and avoid plagiarizing? This session will give you strategies and tips for writing research papers, from summarizing and paraphrasing to using online citation builders that will save you time.

Volunteer Tutors Wanted – Project: Universal Minds

ASSU runs a volunteer tutoring program where UofT students go to local high schools to tutor students in English, Maths and Sciences. These are students who really need the help and generally are not in a situation to pay for private tutoring. The commitment is 1 hour a week for the school year (until June). At the end of the program, each tutor will receive a Certificate of Recognition from the Dean of Arts & Science. If you are interested in applying, please visit our website (under Get Involved) or stop by our office for an application.
