Summer Semester

Learning Resources

Students taking summer classes—especially those who enroll in their toughest major courses over the summer—can rest easy: SUU maintains its critical learning resources throughout the summer as well. All of our students’ favorite learning resources are still available to offer their assistance from Maymester through August.

Student Success Tutoring and Study Lab

The SUU Student Success Tutoring and Study Lab will be open for both the first and second section of summer semester. If you are struggling in any courses, need assistance grasping difficult concepts, or even just feel there’s room to improve on your time management or study skills, the Tutoring and Study Lab can help! Dedicated tutors are available to provide subject-specific assistance in chemistry, biology, mathematics, communication, criminal justice, physics, and many other subjects, as well as general best practices for managing your time, mastering complex material, and improving retention and comprehension.

For hours of operation and to make an appointment, visit the Tutoring and Study Lab online today.

Writing Center

SUU’s Writing Center, a central figure in improving student writing skills and paper organization, offers hours during all three summer sessions, in the Writing Center (Braithwaite 204) throughout the day, and in the Library in the evening. Students can book appointments or walk-in, and skilled writing tutors are available to assist students with thesis construction, grammar, MLA and APA format, topic sentences, paragraph formation, brainstorming, and finding the best ways to get thoughts down into writing. The Writing Center aims to help students master the writing process and make paper writing much less stressful.

Gerald R. Sherratt Library

SUU’s extensive library resources are also available in the summer. All of the most vital technology, access to collections, and research assistance that is normally provided in fall and spring is still available in the summer. The library will be open Monday through Saturday throughout the summer sessions. Utilize the library’s computer lab, find important literature to include in your assignments, and receive valuable assistance simplifying and refining your research process. Students are also invited to rent library study rooms and iPads on a first come, first serve basis.

Computer Labs

Most SUU computer labs are open and accessibility throughout the summer, and availability is higher during the summer than during fall or spring. To view live updates on open labs and available computers now, check out SUU’s Lab Usage now.

International Student Services

SUU’s international student services are maintained throughout the summer as well, due to the strong efforts of the International Student and Scholar Services Office. International students can receive direct summer assistance in any session and speak with liaisons who can keep paperwork and records up-to-date, provide arrival services, and help SUU’s international students easily overcome the challenges of studying in another currently.
