Academic Fellows

Stuck on chemistry homework? Don’t quite know how to start your physics suggested problems? Are you totally lost in Math 102— and you have a test in three days? The Academic Fellows are here to help!

Each residential college has an Academic Fellows or Mentors Society: an honorary service organization dedicated to enhancing the academic life in the college. Academic Fellows at Duncan are sophomores, juniors, and seniors who have been chosen to help you for their GPA, good judicial standing, and commitment to mentoring. They can help you with anything, from studying for midterms or revising a big paper to providing advice on subject-specific internships and other extracurricular activities. You can find more information about the Academic Fellows program in this short video and on the Office of Academic Advising’s webpage.

At Duncan, your Academic Fellows provide free academic assistance on a regular basis through advertised review sessions, “office hours” in the college commons, and individual tutoring by request. You can also find the Duncan Fellows at our bi-weekly “Coffee in the Commons” help sessions on Sunday nights. Be sure to check out the Duncan Fellows Facebook page for updates on office hours, academic enrichment activities, and other events. In the past, we have hosted freshman seminars, mid-semester grade check-ins in collaboration with the Duncan PAAs, a summer opportunities fair, and study breaks throughout the school year. Below you can find the list of the 2016-17 Academic Fellows. Feel free to contact them, and don’t be afraid to ask for help! You can also reach out to Head Fellows Jackie Olive and Reagan Kapp if you would like for them to assist in matching you with a student in your major or subject area. We look forward to working with you!
