Keep it Real • First Year Success • At Southeast, you’ll learn two kinds of skills and knowledge:  those particularly targeted for a specific career or profession (your major), and those that will serve you regardless of your chosen profession (University Studies).  In your major, you’ll learn leading-edge information that will allow you to be successful in your first job.  In University Studies, you’ll learn skills and knowledge that will go beyond job-specific abilities.  These are the skills that will make you a valuable employee and a valued colleague. • Advising: At Southeast, you are encouraged to consider many academic and career interests. Our academic advisors can help by providing guidance related to course selection and registration. If you haven’t selected a major, the University Studies advisor can provide you with assistance. • First STEP Orientation: Sign up for our specially designed Southeast orientation program. This critical program connects students and parents with faculty, staff and other Southeast students and parents. During the day you not only will meet with an adviser and get that all-important class schedule but also you will get your official I.D. card, get advice about academic majors and possible careers, learn about social activities and find out where those critical offices and services you will need are located. • First Year Seminar: Check out our nationally recognized and required First Year Seminar, where you’ll be introduced to the University Studies program and the value of a liberal education while addressing one of a variety of themes. • Kent Library: Southeast's Kent Library is your partner in finding information for completing research papers and class assignments. Library professionals can work with you in person, by phone or e-mail. Online resources bring the library to wherever you are, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
