Hello Everyone, Phi Alpha and the Social Work Club is trying to set up times for tutoring. We want to try and get a count on who would be interested in being a tutor and people who would like to receive tutoring. I have sent out an e-mail with the tutoring request form attached. If you run into any problems please email me. [email protected] or you can email me at [email protected]



Phi Alpha Tutoring will now be held on an appointment basis. Due to the low volume of students attending our walk-in sessions, we ask that you please email us at [email protected] to schedule an appointment for tutoring.

Please note that Phi Alpha assists with the development of paper ideas, APA Checklists, exam studying, homework, and more. If you need academic assistance, please reach out!


Our usual meeting of 12pm-1pm will still be occurring today, despite the conflict of the Study Abroad Meeting. Board members will be present in Lake Superior B between these times to answer questions, accept applications, etc.


Want emails from Phi Alpha? We send out reminders about our meetings, events, updates, and even about upcoming class assignments you may want to know about!

Don't get these emails? Send us one to request getting on the mailing list at [email protected]


Don't forget! Exams are coming up! Tonight will be our final Tutoring and Mentor session for the fall semester! Join us in the Lake Michigan room from 5:30 to 7:00 tonight for a little extra help! :)


Reminder! There is a Social Work Club and Phi Alpha meeting today! It is at 12pm (noon) in Lake Superior A in the Oakland Center!

Today, Sunday, November 8th, 2015, will be the LAST DAY for you to send your Developmental Theory Draft Papers to Phi Alpha for review!

Papers can be submitted with the APA Checklist at [email protected], but please keep in mind that no further papers will be accepted after 11:59pm tonight!

Thank you for understanding, and we are glad we could help!

Hello, all!
Just a quick reminder about a few events that are happening tomorrow, September 10th!

GRIZZFEST is happening! If you don't know, GrizzFest is a volunteer, community business, and involvment fair! Not only will your Social Work Club and Phi Alpha be there to give you information about our wonderful organizations, but so will many other groups, such as local businesses, who will be giving out samples and coupons to attending students! Many Non-Profit groups will also be attending, so make sure to visit if you are interested in information about how to volunteer or intern with groups like OUCARES, The Red Cross, Affirmations, The Boys and Girls Club, Winning Futures, and so many more!
GrizzFest will be located outside in the space between the Oakland Center and Kresge Library... you'll see all the tables!

Phi Alpha's Social Work Tutoring and Mentorship Night!
Every Thursday, Phi Alpha is going to be available to Social Work students on a walk-in basis to go over assignments, papers, exams... anything related to the Social Work Program! There is a schedule of sessions and room locations on the Phi Alpha bulletin board located on the 5th floor of Varner, between 512A and 512B!
Since classes have barely started, we're guessing you won't have much to bring to us... but we'll be there anyways! Come meet us, especially if you are interested in becoming a senior mentor, or are interested in having a mentor, or just to chat!
We will be in the Lake Michigan room in the Oakland Center!

Social Work Bonfire Kick Off!
We just want to kick off the year in the best way! Join us after the tutoring session to kick back and relax after successfully making it through a full week of classes! Bring something to eat or drink for yourself, or better yet--- something to share with everyone!
The bonfire pit is located by the P11 parking lot, and the Outdoor Recreation Complex.

We're excited for the year to start off with so many great events planned, and we truly hope to see many of your wonderful faces!
See you tomorrow!!!
