In addition to regular Teaching Assistant office hours, The Department offers Help Room hours to students in STAT 1001, 1111, and 1211. While students in these courses may find that the Teaching Assistant assigned to their section may be their best resource, students in these courses may attend hours for Assistants or Readers assigned to any section of their course. Students in other courses should attend hours of the Assistant or Reader assigned to their section. Updated Help Room Schedule at:
