SI sessions are led by students who have already been successful in the same class that you are taking. They are trained by the Center of Academic Success to facilitate study groups and work closely with the professor to ensure that the sessions are on target with the course.
At each session, the SI leader will guide the students through the course concepts. SI leaders will help students make good use of their time and share the strategies they used to be successful in the course. SI leaders will not re-lecture, give out copies of his or her notes, help students with assigned homework, or encourage last minute test cramming.
Students who attend SI sessions statically earn better grades. Research shows that students regularly average one half to one full letter grade higher than their classmates who choose not to attend. Students are also able to transfer the skills they learn to other classes that do not offer SI support.
The SI leader will make an announcement about sessions on the first day of class. You may also check our SI schedule with your class schedule to see.
SI sessions are free! Students are encouraged to come as often as they like, however, the statistics show that the more sessions a student attends, the better their grades are.
