Of all things you can be at SEU, alone is not one of them. These teams are here to walk alongside and support you during your academic, social, and spiritual journey.
Go to the Welcome Week events, volunteer, find a local church, and say hi to your neighbor!
Whether you use Google Calendar, a paper planner, or one of many apps, start the semester off by writing down all of your assignments.
Don’t be afraid to go to their office hours or send an email if you’re struggling.
It can be helpful to have an initial conversation and schedule a time to check in a few weeks into the semester. This gives you a chance to get used to living together and note things you would like to talk through.
You are a human being, not a human doing. As you settle into your routine, take note of times when you can stop to rest and have fun.
Whether it’s budgeting your Fire Funds to get you to the end of the semester or planning out when you will get your Spiritual Formation credits, think ahead and see how you can be kind to your future self.
Email is the official form of communication at SEU. Make sure you are checking your email, MyFire course announcements, and other forms of communication regularly.
Give yourself grace as you become someone you’ve never been before. College is new to you, and it’s okay to be a learner and not know everything along the way.
While college is a time to engage in academics, it’s also a season to transition from a high schooler to a college student, then from a college student to an adult.
Along the way, we’ll help you grow in all areas of being so you can walk across the graduation stage not just career-ready, but life ready!
In your college journey, there comes a layer of responsibility to have awareness of and care for your own well-being. This is not an easy task, be sure to offer yourself grace as you compassionately navigate tending to all areas of your life.
On average, students spend 15 hours in the classroom. How you spend the other 153 hours in a weekwill begin to fill this time based on your personal values, faith, and lived experiences.

Campus Safety Alerts
Members of the SEU community are able to receive emergency text alerts concerning crises on or near the campus as part of the SEU Alert system.
If you have an academic concern, please follow this procedure.
STEP 1: Fill out your own expectations
Upon move-in, each student will be given a worksheet to process through and note their preferences for community living. You will think through things such as when guests can come over, what is shared, scent preferences, lights out times, and noise level (among other things).
STEP 2: Schedule a meeting with your entire suite before Add/Drop
Each suitemate will share the individual responses they wrote on their Roommate Expectation Questionnaire. Together you will decide what will go in your collaborative Roommate Agreement. The Roommate Agreement will serve as your guidelines for living together for the semester.
STEP 3: Turn in your completed roommate agreement to your resident assistant
A hard copy of the completed Roommate Agreement will be turned in to the Resident Assistant the week of Add/Drop. All roommates will have agreed on and signed the document.
Purpose: To help students resolve conflict with dignity and grace in order to increase self-sufficiency, promote resiliency, and build sustainable relationships.
