Experiential Opportunities & Strong Academic Guidance
The Fox School’s Center for Undergraduate Advising helps students successfully navigate curriculum and select their majors by creating an academic plan that combines their interests, skills and goals. The center also utilizes Peer Advisors, who work with their fellow students to answer questions about curriculum.
In addition to all the center’s resources, Temple offers a variety of tutoring programs and services, including the Writing Center, the Math and Science Resource Center, and services specific to a student’s major.
The Diamond Peer Teachers program is another example of how Temple and the Fox School support students in the classroom by providing additional student course mentors to help classmates succeed.
Additionally, the Fox School established the Business Communications Center to ensure Fox undergraduates enter the working world with the level of excellence employers require. Staff members at the center provide one-on-one tutoring sessions and feedback on papers and projects.
