Notes from our Loyd Peer Leaders

From Your Peer Health Educator – Carlyle Reid

Hello Loydians!

For those of y’all who don’t read the emails from the Health Center, I thought that this was extremely relevant. This week is the week the “sick season” starts, and as the weather starts to get colder, more of us are getting sick. These are completely free, and if you want to go study abroad, you MUST have the specific type of flu shot that SMU gives out for free!

FREE! FLU SHOT CLINICS!

Wed. Oct. 22 1:30PM-3:30PM Expressway Towers
Tues. Oct. 28 4-6 PM SMU Plano
From Your Peer for Academic Enhancement – Laura Mason

Do you need math help?

 

My name is Laura Mason and I am Loyd’s Peer for Academic Enhancement. I am here to help you with all your math problems. I have math experience up to Calculus III and am available to help in any math class below that.

 

I will be holding office hours every Sunday and Thursday from 7:30-8:30 pm.

 

If you have any questions about math or how to find another tutor, contact me at ljmason@smu.edu!
