4.0 and Go’s Northgate location will be offering specials this week to prepare for upcoming final examinations. While group tutoring rates will stay at $8+ per hour, the tutoring service will be serving Northgate-esque beverages at a discounted price.
Founded in 1994, 4.0 and Go has long been located in a strip center off Texas Avenue, but the company’s Northgate expansion locates the tutoring service between Chimy’s and Bar 12, two popular Northgate establishments.
December is considered a confusing time for 4.0 and Go, as students find themselves conflicted between going to tutoring or bars to prepare for finals. “Sure, I should be going to MGMT 209 tutoring for four hours, but I’d much rather pound a Dr. Pepper Shootout at Chimy’s,” said Bryce Dillenger, a sophomore industrial distribution major. 4.0 and Go’s recent attendance has fallen, with students, like Dillenger, opting for a night out with friends rather than middle-aged tutors.
In response, 4.0 and Go has opened a full service bar inside its building, offering a wide variety of Northgate favorites like pickle shots and chuggers. Additionally, they provide specials such as $1 wells and $2 domestic drafts to go along with their expansive beverage menu. 4.0 and Go’s management spoke on the new feature: “We understand how stressful finals are for students, and we are aware of the necessity of alcohol to cope with the stress. By opening a bar inside our Northgate location, we combine two activities that are needed in order for students to survive classes like MGMT 211 and PHYS 201.”
On top of providing a full service bar, the tutoring service’s employees will also act as a wait staff during group sessions. Customers will no longer have to leave their seats as they learn about ionic and covalent bonds while being served their favorite mixed drinks.
Competitor Chimy’s looks to counter this move from 4.0 and Go by offering tutoring services for select business and engineering classes.
