Every week, NYU faculty set aside office hours just for you. It’s a time for you to ask questions and bounce ideas around. It’s also an opportunity for your professors, like NYU biology and genomics professor Stephen Small, to give you individualized attention and make sure you feel totally confident in your knowledge.

In this edition of Office Hours, brought to you by our friends at NYU News, Professor Small explains why you should take advantage of his office hours early and often. Spoiler alert: don’t wait until the week before finals.
