“With students learning from their peers and even SI leaders learning from the students in sessions they facilitate, SI is one of the most genuine and collaborative environments on campus. The soft skills and peer connections you gain from participating in SI make the whole experience invaluable.”

“Through attending SI sessions and becoming an SI Leader myself, I have been able to see my confidence as a student evolve as I practice collaborating with others and engaging in meaningful discussions all while reviewing course material. SI goes so far beyond simply reinforcing content and has helped me develop skills I will take with me for the rest of my time here at Auburn and in my future career.”
