Tough courses getting to you?

Supplemental Instruction (SI) can help pick up the slack with peer-assisted study in:
  • Nursing
  • Biology
  • Math
  • Chemistry
  • Accounts
They’re regularly-scheduled, informal reviews where students can:
  • Compare notes
  • Discuss readings
  • Get organized
  • Predict test items

It’s a great way to brush up on course content, so visit the LRC (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

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.

Do I have to go to SI?

Nope, it’s up to you, but most students recommend getting in the habit—like it’s a required course. Hour-long sessions are offered 2-3 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.
