About the Quantitative and Science Center (Q&SC) 

Who We Are and What We Do

The College established the Q&SC in 2014 to help F&M students build problem solving and quantitative skills through peer-to-peer help.  With a team of nearly 50 peer tutors, the Q&SC provides many opportunities for students seeking additional resources to help master course content and enhance study skills.
