Finish The Course

Back for our 15th semester here at Gordon, The Academic Support Center (ASC) and the Academic Affairs Council (AAC) invite you to join them in this finals prep initiative to “finish well, finish strong... Finish the Course.”

Finish the Course, starting December 9, 2013

What is Finish the Course?

Based on 2 Timothy 4:7 which reads, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith,” Finish the Course (FTC) is a finals time study initiative that was designed by a Gordon student to help fellow students prepare and study for final exams and finish their term papers. The goal of FTC is to help Gordon students face the rigors of finals as a community and develop an increased awareness of our need to depend on God.

What does Finish The Course offer?

  • Finals Clinic outside the Bistro, December 9 & 10, 12:00pm-1:00pm. The Clinic will offer "one stop shopping" for finals help and support, including a chance to consult with one of our staff members.
  • Daily Quiet Study Halls: Sunday-Thursday nights, Alumni Reading Room from 6–10 p.m. and Saturday, December 14th from 2–5 p.m. These “study halls” are held in a designated quiet area for better concentration and minimal distractions. Please turn your cell phones to silent! 
  • Snacks (courtesy of your faculty and staff!) in the ASC starting on Friday, December 13 through finals, ending on December 19th.
  • Daily e-mail inspiration and devotionals for encouragement and support
  • Drop-in study skills assistance or general academic support with the ASC staff between December 9-19th, 8:00am -4:30pm.
  • Additional tutoring hours in the Writing Center; stay tuned for announcement
  • Extended Jenks Library hours—TBA
