The Percy Ellis Sutton SEEK Program


SEEK counselors provide SEEK students with support and guidance to help them succeed in college. All SEEK students are assigned a counselor to work together towards achieving educational goals, developing career interests and maintaining overall wellness. SEEK counselors help students monitor their educational progress toward their degree by connecting students with academic and other supportive services. Overall, SEEK counselors help students to work through the challenges, demands and expectations of college of life.

SEEK Counseling Services

Counselors are available to assist you to reach your goals. We offer a variety of services and activities designed to help all SEEK students navigate personal and academic issues, explore curiosities and take advantage of opportunities.

Students in the SEEK community participate in various activities such as:

Introduction to College Life - AAA 1010:

  • First semester SEEK students are enrolled in a one-credit course taught by their SEEK counselor. The course provides freshmen students with an orientation to college life, assists them in the development of academic skills, and helps develop an understanding of themselves and what it takes to succeed in college and beyond. The course helps create a support system to promote students’ confidence and motivation toward completing academic, career, and personal goals.


  • SEEK students can attend counselor-led workshops that serve as safe space for small and large group discussions, activities, and exercises to learn something new, connect with other students and have fun.
