Group Study Sessions

Group Study Sessions are led by one or two upper-class cadets who earned a B or better in the particular course at VMI.

The leaders work with a faculty member who does not attend the session but serves as a resource and support by communicating with the leaders after each session to review what was covered, help with any questions the leaders have, etc.  The sessions are free, and no registration is necessary.

The MAC also offers "GSS+" which includes faculty in a more substantive way.  A faculty member from the department serves as a mentor to the cadet leaders, attends each weekly session, and assists the cadet leaders in planning the session.  Faculty members interested in learning more about this program should contact Lt. Col. McKelvey at
