This is to let you know about a new program being offered by a group of physics graduate students here at UIUC! 


In short, we’ll be hosting Zoom rooms at various times throughout every week starting on Monday November 2nd to be used for group study sessions for your course, with the purpose of answering physics and physics-related questions and generally just chatting and hanging out. Each room will be staffed by an on-call graduate student who can help you out with homework, facilitate study sessions, or even answer questions you might have about graduate school. Everyone is welcome to join, whether you just want a place to study with others or if you have specific questions you’d like answered. We hope that this can be a useful resource to you in navigating this semester, and that we’ll see you in one of the Zoom rooms! If you’re interested, check out the spreadsheet at this link for room times and the Zoom join info:
