  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Physics
They’re regularly-scheduled, informal reviews where students can:
  • Compare notes
  • Discuss readings
  • Get organized

It’s a great way to brush up on course content, so visit the ARC (Luther 200) to grab a schedule of dates, locations and times for available SI components.

FAQs

How can SI help?

It’s all about insider information. SI sessions are led by students who’ve successfully completed your course — with the same professor. Simply put: they’ve been there. It also improves:

  • Study strategies and time management.
  • Unique note taking and memory aids.
  • Anticipating test questions.
  • Vocabulary development.
  • Helps students become more independent thinkers by assisting them to develop and use course resources (lecture notes, tests, quizzes, labs, etc.) effectively

Who should attend SI?

Everyone in a course that offers SI! It’s help for hard courses, not struggling students, so don’t be afraid to stop by.

Make the Most of Your SI Session

  • Here are some tips that will make the most out of your SI session:
  • Hour-long sessions are offered 1-2 times a week and you can come as often as you’d like. And if you need more help, swing by the SI leader’s weekly office hours.
  • Come on time and prepared with any questions!
  • Use SI as an opportunity to meet other students in your class and form study groups.
  • Use the strategies used in SI in your own study sessions.
