I trust your semester is off to a great start. Whether you are a new or returning student, we care about your SIU experience and want you to feel at home on our beautiful campus.
Whether you are planning a future in engineering, education, agriculture, business, science, technology, the arts or another field – or whether you are still exploring -- we are here to help you gain the knowledge and experience you need to be successful.
As an SIU student, you will be in the company of other great students, faculty who are leaders in their fields, staff who want to make your path to graduation smooth, and successful alumni who are proud to help the Salukis who follow them.
While you are at SIU, I hope you take advantage of opportunities within and outside of the classroom to gain real-life experience that will give you an edge after you graduate.
Lastly, I hope you will engage in campus life through student organizations, the arts, athletics and more. Every Friday is “Saluki Spirit Friday,” so feel free to wear maroon to show your SIU colors.
Again, welcome! I look forward to a great year.
