About PAL

  • Tutoring for most introductory and GER (general education requirement) courses
  • Trained undergraduate student consultants (Peer Learning Consultants, or PLCs) who have taken the course and are familiar with course content
  • Small group sizes with a ratio of no more than 5 students per 1 PLC
  • PLC-facilitated Study Hall sessions to help you stay on track with your workload

Program Mission

Our mission in PAL is to provide:

  1. Collaborative, peer-facilitated, content-based learning support for students.
  2. Support in applying effective studying and group learning methods for students.
  3. And an engaged learning experience that is aligned with The Furman Advantage for Peer Learning Consultants.

To put it in a shorter soundbite: we want to help students become better learners!

If you have any questions about our program, please email or  Jean Schwab, Director of Peer Assisted Learning.
