Finish the Course

Back for our 18th 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 7, 2015

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?

  • Stress Workshop in the ASC on December 8 from 11:30am-12:15pm
  • Finals Clinic outside the Bistro for finals help and support, including a chance to consult with one of our staff members on December 7 and 8 from 11:45am-12:45pm
  • Daily Quiet Study Halls. These “study halls” are held in the Jenks Alumni Reading Room, the designated quiet area for better concentration and minimal distractions. Please turn your cell phones to silent! 
  • Encouragement emails (courtesy of your faculty and staff!)
  • Drop-in study skills assistance or general academic support with the ASC staff
  • Additional tutoring hours in the Writing Center
  • Speed Sabbath - A room where students can go for a cup of tea, prayer, and perspective about finals from a faculty or staff member. Located in Jenks 422 on December 14-16 from 8:30am-4:30pm and from 8:30-11:30am on December 17.
