Brandeis Academic Fellows Set to Guide the First Year Students
After a day of training and team-building, the 2013-2014 Brandeis Academic Fellows are ready to help our First Year Law Students through the rigors of being a 1L.
The Academic Fellows for this year are:
Neil Aboulhosn Jessica Hazelwood
Andrea Aikin Eric Proctor
Alexa Cox Sarah Reddick
Leah Gravius Adrienne Stonecypher
Chris Groeschen Jessica Wikett
The Academic Fellow Coordinators this year are:
Caitlin Baird Mia Walters
In conjunction with the Academic Success Office, each of these outstanding upper division students is prepared to plan and lead a small Structured Study Group of first year students, in which the necessary skills for law school success will be emphasized and practiced in a fun, interactive way. In addition, the Academic Fellows will hold weekly office hours and act as general peer mentors for the first year students. Click here for the Academic Fellows' photos and office hours. This program is a wonderful resource for our 1L's!
The first Structured Study Groups will be held on Friday, 8/30. The Fellows will begin holding their office hours the following week. First Year Students should be receiving an email next week from their Academic Fellow, introducing himself or herself and telling them where their SSG will meet. All SSG's meet on Fridays from 11:50-12:50.
