  • First Year Success
  • At Southeast, youll 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, youll learn leading-edge information that
    will allow you to be successful in your first
    job.  In University Studies, youll 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 havent 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
    youll 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.
