The Point: A Learning Resource for AEC Students

The AEC is happy to introduce a new service to help you study, learn, and become part of the KU community!  If you have a specific question about your classwork, or if you just want to work on a special area, you can come to our special new room in the Anschutz Library.  We call this special room “The Point.”

AEC instructors will be there to help you with your questions!  The Point was so popular last semester that we have added more hours.


  • Monday through Friday, 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
  • Wednesday, February 20 through Friday, April 19th


  • Room 438, Anschutz Library
    (See map below - The Point is located in the building across the plaza from The Underground in Wescoe Hall; walk in the front door of Anschutz Library and go up one floor)


  • Walk-in and go up to the 4th floor.  Look for a big glass corner room. Bring your assignment and materials with you!
  • Go to the Service Desk on the 3rd floor and make an appointment.
  • Call The Point at 864-4928.

Do’s and Don’ts

    • Bring your book or materials with you.
    • Have a specific question or area that you want to work on.


    • Expect help completing homework assignments (we can help explain it to you).
    • Ask broad, general questions (e.g., I don’t read very well.); be specific!  (e.g., I need help finding the main idea in a paragraph.)  You only have 30 minutes!
