SIFP Academic Support

For the Spring 2024 Semester, SIFP is featuring several advanced options to support our students academically!



Math (General)

Dr. Dr. David Villalobos

Mondays, 6:00-8:00 pm, Forbes College Multi-Purpose Room 

Is there anything from your math class that you’ve found particularly interesting or difficult? Would you like to talk about a specific homework or exam question? Are you looking for general advice on how to make the most of your math classes at Princeton? Then come to SIFP’s Math, which is a weekly series of informal meetings led by Math faculty and intended for SIFP students enrolled in any math class. The aim is to help you develop your techniques and study habits in the mathematical sciences. Come and join us for Math, food, and the company of your fellow SIFPeeps!

No sign-up needed; just attend.


CHM 202

Dr. Sonja Francis

Forbes Dining Hall

While the Chem 202 table is not SIFP specific, the chemistry dinner table is available for students enrolled in General Chemistry II who would like extra academic assistance. It involves meeting students once a week for dinner and intense and intentional problem-solving in Chemistry. The allotted time is spent by first fostering student-faculty interactions through conversation over a meal, followed by learning and using metacognitive learning strategies to solve advanced problems focusing on the course curricula. Emphasis is on building competence and confidence in reasoning and logical thinking skills through the Chemistry curriculum.

If interested, please contact Dr. Sonja Francis for days and times.
