We do stay open during finals week, and we continue to see students by appointment. Many of our English professors assign take-home final papers in lieu of final exams, and so we still see quite a few students (often at the last minute) who need help with papers. Also, our math, science, IT, and business tutors stay busy with students asking questions as they study for upcoming exams.
Of course, traffic gets lighter the further we get into the week, but we do generally stay busy.

Subject: Keeping Tutoring Center Open During Finals Week?
Every semester our tutoring center struggles with whether to remain open during finals week.
Our data shows that very few students (under 20) use our center during finals, but we always close the writing center.
Do any of you keep your tutoring centers open during this week (tutoring for math, science, and humanities)? If so (or not), would you be willing to share your rationale?
Thank you so much!
