Congratulations to the graduating class of 2013 and welcome to the new students entering Southeastern Illinois College in Fall 2013. I expect a great 2013-2014 academic year for our new and returning SSS students. We will continue to provide a variety of new and creative events/activities and we hope that you all will actively participate.
Please take your time and read your emails, quarterly newsletters, and the message boards across campus to receive updated information on SSS events and activities. The Supplemental Grant Aid Scholarship program will continue this year so be sure to come to one of the scheduled times and let the SSS staff know if you have any questions or concerns. We look forward to assisting you this academic year. Please plan to actively participate in the program’s events and activities. I will be available to answer any questions that you have regarding the SSS program and your academic success.
We have arranged the events and activities for various time blocks and online so that you all will not have to miss a class. If you have signed up for one of the Transfer/College visits and/or off-campus activity with TRIO, please get prior approval from your instructors to complete your work for classes. There are many opportunities for attending the workshops and trips without missing class.
We are restructuring our mentoring program and have more mentors to assist with the required and permissible services that we offer to students each year. We also have a new Program Specialist, Shelly Boots, who joined us in mid-August. She replaced Lisa Seets, who retired on July 31, 2013. Again, I am excited about this year and I’m looking forward to meeting you all over the next couple of months.
If you have any questions, feel free to stop by my office in the E-120, call 618-252-5400 ext. 2432 or email me at email@example.com.
