Cram Sessions

Prior to midterms and finals, OPUS members offer a four hour session answering curated questions from previous exams and textbooks (including WileyPlus questions) to prepare you for your final exams and 2 hours for your midterms. You will get in-depth explanations and techniques to solving common exam questions and the theory involved. All proceeds go towards OPUS events and bursaries.

About OPUS

Decades have passed since the founding of OPUS but it has always been an orchestra of curious and ambitious students that share a passion for Physics and Math. To this day, it aims to connect like-minded students, and continues to maintain its amicable position within the department.

OPUS currently offers $600 bursaries, free first year tutoring, organizes the CAP lectures for the faculty, and more. Membership is free and welcome to any undergraduate student (from any department), however only volunteer tutors are offered study carrels in 206 Allen.



OPUS Journal Club

OPUS now has a journal club! This is a very informal way to start to get comfortable with reading academic papers with your undergraduate peers. Each meeting will be hosted by someone who will talk through some of the key points of the paper and we will all discuss any questions or concerns we might have. Journal club is open to anyone and if you would like to get involved please email us. We will meet every two weeks and the journal we will be reviewing will be posted below.

Journal Club will be resuming its bi-weekly meetings this Monday, January 25th, at 3 pm. August will be discussing this article:
