Chris LaRussa

What is your major/minor?


What year in school are you?


Interesting fact?

I LOVE Music. It's my outlet for stress and really anything. I always have a song stuck in my head and love when people ask me to make playlist for them!

What do you do outside of being a busy student?

I love to run when I get the chance and workout at the gym. It’s time to think, listen to music, get lost in my thoughts. I enjoy that time!

How many semesters have you been facilitating?


Which courses do you facilitate for now, or have in the past?

BIOL 1108K

What are your short-term and long-term goals, and how does SI (Supplemental Instruction) relate to those?

My short term goal is to get into medical school with my end goal of being a surgeon! SI helps with that in that it makes you think about information in more than one way. I have learned so many study techniques that go far beyond just memorizing massive amounts of material, but actually learning it!

What is your favorite SI moment?

I love building confidence in my students – that moment then they stop asking if they are correct and tell you they are right and then back it up with "here's why"!

What have you gained from being an SI facilitator?

I have gained a better understanding for how learning styles can differ with different people and how to find ways to adapt to that!

What study tips/techniques do you have for students?

Study with a buddy. That is probably one of the most useful things you can do. College is hard and sometimes it's nice to have someone to go through it with.

What do you like/what excites you about the material you SI for?

I see how it is used in other classes and can see the big picture which is very helpful when trying to help students understand why this matters.

What has been your favorite collaborative learning technique (CLT) that you have done in your sessions?

Grab bag!
