Another small way we can show we are invested in our students success is to add more office hours before exams. So ASPer's do this without being told that it is a good practice. ASPer's can also gently encourage faculty to extend their office hours during reading week.
1) Extended office hours allow last-minute "A HA!" moments.
2) Extended office hours can prevent undue anxiety and meltdowns. Sometimes students just need last-minute reassurance that they are on the right path.
3) Extended office hours can prevent the email avalanche before the final.
4) Extended office hours can allow a student to bow out if they are not going to make it. (RCF)
