Description:As a result of student concerns from last year, the second year students implemented a “Student Help Desk” during the midterm and finals weeks of the fall 2009 semester. Second year students reserved space in the Caserooms and were available for questions regarding economics, finance, statistics and accounting. Some second year students were resistant to participate because they did not feel it was fair that the new first year students would have tutoring available when they did not have the same opportunities. Overall, about 10 students volunteered for the Help Desk. Complaints about lack of tutoring services available, especially in finance, have decreased drastically from last year.
