The History Department is participating in a new university program, sponsored by UAH's Academic Resource Center, to help first year students succeed. The initiative’s acronym is PASS for Peer-Assisted Study Sessions. Two history majors, Veronica Ferreira and Sarah Fisher will run voluntary study sessions for Dr. Waring’s sections of Western Civilization I. Veronica and Sarah will help students develop skills and become independent learners. They will each organize three one-hour sessions every week, and assist with such skills as reading, research, test-preparation, and essay writing. Studies have shown that such study sessions help students succeed in class, do well in other courses, and graduate. Veronica and Sarah’s PASS schedule
