The CLAS Blog was created with several purposes in mind: to serve as a resource for tutors and students alike, to be a creative outlet for CLAS employees, and to further engage and promote our services to the university. We would like for the blog to complement the services that we provide, creating a hub of helpful resources, such as tips and study skills that tutors use themselves. Beyond this, we will also seek to provide thoughtful, interesting, and relevant commentary on topics both inside and out of the world of academia.
Our vision is for this blog to become a lively center for the minds of Suffolk University to meet, and to facilitate the interactions between students inside and out of CLAS on a more personal level, going beyond the academic services CLAS provides. We hope to regularly post interesting content, and welcome feedback from any and all readers.
We asked some CLAS tutors and staff what CLAS means to them:
Jason (grad fellow): CLAS means helping Suffolk be better, and creating community.
Valerie Ryan (writing tutor): Tutoring makes me joyful.
Siobhan Sullivan (CR): CLAS is a great place for students, more than just a place to go for tutoring.
Fran (Reception Manager): Like the cartoon Voltron, they all come together and become one big thing. Or the Justice League. The unification of different services.
