Summer Enrichment Experience (SEE)
SEE is an intensive, four-week summer program for incoming Auburn University freshmen. The program will be staffed by mathematics and English faculty, graduate teaching assistants, counselors and academic advisors.
Students take two classes designed to prepare them for courses in freshmen calculus and English. Each course has a parallel workshop supplementing the classroom instruction. The classroom teaching is conducted by full-time faculty members and workshops are supervised by graduate students. Through these courses and workshops, students will have an opportunity to improve their skills and ready themselves for their freshman year. Students will not receive university credit for these courses, however, each student will receive a written evaluation of his or her performance. This information will help students determine which courses they should enroll in for the fall semester.
Students will also be taught study and time management skills, attend seminars and discussions on topics, such as, career options and choosing and succeeding in their academic programs at Auburn University. Students will also visit businesses and industries, in a variety of career fields, and go on cultural field trips.
Computer use will be an integral part of the program. Students will be taught how to use the university computer network for communication, course requirements and accessing the library and other important information such as course schedules, financial aid, etc.
The aim of the program is to:
· increase students’ mathematics and English skills
· expose students to the eight participating schools and colleges
· develop students’ study and time management skills
· introduce students to a network of faculty staff and fellow minority students
To be eligible for this program, applicants must:
· be admitted to Auburn University’s main campus for upcoming fall semester.
