 With more than 700 classes to choose from and more online classes than ever before, now is the best time to “dive in” and enroll in Southern Illinois University Edwardsville’s Summer Session. It’s a smart move that could mean a chance to attend classes with an even lower student-teacher ratio than usually offered (17:1) at SIUE.

According to Dr. Charles Berger, professor of English language and literature and coordinator of the summer session, attending class in the summer provides students with a number of flexible options.

“SIUE offers a great variety of courses at all levels during the summer: introductory general education courses, required upper-division classes for the major, graduate seminars,” said Berger. “We also provide a growing number of online offerings for students who can’t make it to campus.

“Most of our courses run for five weeks, and we offer two five-week sessions during the summer. SIUE has one of the most academically vibrant summer programs in the country, providing students with a great opportunity to continue learning and making progress toward graduation.”

Berger also pointed out other benefits to enrolling in summer session:

• Fees are less

• Housing is significantly less expensive

• Summer is an excellent time to take classes typically difficult to enroll in for fall or spring

• It’s a beautiful time to be on the SIUE campus, with foliage in full bloom, lush green landscaping; a perfect setting for biking, walking or swimming at the pool

• Students can break from studies and enjoy Summer Showbiz on the mainstage at SIUE’s Dunham Hall, or any of the area attractions such as the St. Louis Cardinals, the St. Louis Zoo and a variety of museums

• There are numerous student job opportunities on campus during the summer session
