The Polaris Science Center
The Polaris Science Center has proven in its first year to be an important and beneficial service on the Franklin & Marshall campus. The center has made great strides this year, and will continue to grow and develop into a dynamic academic institution on campus.
The Polaris Science Center has given students the opportunity to pursue new leadership roles on campus, while also encouraging academic peer interaction. Every student who is a part of the program has gained valuable skills and learning experiences. Coordinators, tutors, and tutees have all benefited from the center, both academically and personally.
In the years to come, Polaris hopes to employ new techniques of advertising and obtain an exclusive and permanent location. Polaris also plans to offer multiple styles of tutoring to best fit the needs of each student. These styles include one-on-one and group tutoring, instant message, and workshops.
Polaris will continue to foster student leadership and intellectual growth. Polaris’ first year successes have proved worth the continued support of the F&M community.
