Students who attend will learn more about the University Studies Program, Student Financial Services, Kent Library resources available for regional campus students and student development resources. The orientation will originate from Sikeston, Mo., and will be broadcast via interactive television to Southeast’s regional campuses in Malden, Kennett, Poplar Bluff and Perryville, Mo., as well.

College Success Seminars, offered through Southeast’s Learning Assistance Program, will be held Aug. 10. The workshops are designed to assist students with building academic skills. Topics to be covered include: Southeast computing skills, time management, note-taking, reading skills, study skills, writing skills and learning styles.
