Drop-In to see a Peer Mentor, Ask a Question Online, & Places to Study on Campus

Want to stay on track in your classes? Or get some support in organizing assignments or making a study plan? Can’t find what you’re looking for on the BC search engine? Need an answer to a question or help connecting to resources? Need a body double to get some work done?

What is body doubling? Body doubling is a technique used to improve focus and productivity. It involves having someone else physically present while you work, even if they’re doing their own tasks. This can help reduce distractions and help you stay on track with your work.

Need something else? Stop by to ask, either on campus or online! We are here to set you up: see available times below.
