Your Top 5
We have curated this quick list (called Your Top 5) just for you. These are the key things you need to know (and do) this month to make sure that your 2021–2022 academic year is a successful one.
Move-in & Welcome Days Excitement!
Get ready for fun and meaningful activities to kick off the semester as we celebrate our new and returning Hilltoppers and a new school year. Watch for more details soon about Move-in, Anchors and Welcome Days. In the meantime, make note of our move-in dates for all students, and this Back-to-Campus checklist of helpful reminders.
Get Help with Advising & Registration
Do you have any questions for a success coach about fall classes after attending Orientation or registering online? Stop by Saturday Quick Fix Hours virtually or in person on Aug. 21. There will also be walk-in hours available the first week of classes. You’ll get answers and be able to register for classes if you haven’t already.
SEU Mobile Apps & Tech Requirements
Make sure you download the Topper Safe app and Mobile Credentials app, and keep them updated. You’ll use these important apps daily on the hilltop. And to ensure the quality and consistency of your technology-based instruction at St. Edward’s, you should have the equipment listed in the Minimum Tech Requirements sheet.
Career Resources for Your Success
Our Career and Professional Development (CAPD) team provides the personal assistance, tools and resources that equip you to land internships, build transferable skills and networking contacts, and enter the job market or grad school with confidence. View a roundup of valuable CAPD support available, and tap into it early this fall.
BONUS: Don’t Miss These Campus Fairs
Join us for a casual, Part-Time Job Fair on Thursday, Aug. 25, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Meet 30–40 employers and discuss part-time job opportunities available both on and off campus. And mark your calendar for Sept. 1 to attend the Involvement Fair to learn about the many student organizations and clubs on campus.
Proof of Vaccines & Insurance Requirements
Covid-19 and meningitis vaccines are required, with certain documented exemptions allowable. All students under 22 as of the first day of class must be immunized against bacterial meningitis. The immunization must have been received less than five years and at least 10 days prior to the first day of class. Once vaccinated, submit your meningitis record to the Health & Counseling Center. Learn more and access the meningitis forms. If you have submitted proof of immunization during a previous year on the hilltop, you do not need to submit it again.
You must also submit your Covid-19 vaccination paperwork by August 8. This should include either a record of your first/primary vaccination series or an exemption request that has been approved by the university. If you have previously submitted proof of vaccination or already have an approved exemption on file with the university, you do not need to submit that information again. While we encourage everyone to remain up-to-date for Covid boosters, we only require proof of vaccination for the primary series.
Your personal health insurance paperwork is due by the September 7 deadline or you will be billed for the university-sponsored health insurance. Go to myHilltop to submit your proof of insurance.
Reminder: Use Your SEU Email Account
Your SEU email account is the official way St. Edward’s communicates with you. Using your SEU email allows us to verify your enrollment at St. Edward’s and keep you up to date on information that requires your attention. Please be sure to check your SEU email daily and always communicate with the university through that account.

Title IX and Sexual Misconduct Monthly Updates
May 2, 2022
Congratulations Class of 2022 – you have overcome so much adversity and we wish you the very best as you take on your world beyond the Hilltop! I want to offer special gratitude to graduating student leaders Anna Martinez, Student Title IX Advisory Board Chair, Haley Muse, Title IX Communication Intern, and Destiny Nicoll, It’s On Us President, for their outstanding leadership and hard work to bring forward difficult discussions, awareness and prevention programming and consistent communication about sex and gender misconduct. The students who volunteer their time and passion to these groups, as well as staff, faculty and students who serve on the SEU Title IX Committee, also deserve our thanks!
Next year’s leaders are:
Chair, Student Title IX Advisory Board: Desi Tsacalis, sophomore majoring in political science
President, It’s On Us: Adoree Benke, senior majoring in international business
Title IX Communication Intern (Fall): Still accepting applications through Handshake Job #6093059
While the work is never done when it comes to sex and gender harassment and violence, important initiatives were accomplished this year, through campus partners and student leaders, including but not limited to:
Launching the Redefining Men program, bringing back Take Back the Night march in full force, continuing semesterly Safety Walks with SGA, UPD and Facilities staff, providing prevention and educational programming in each residential community;
Distributing our first Sexual Assault Climate Survey for students, faculty and staff, improving monthly newsletters (no more 3 page letters from me);
Creating short student videos for the Title IX webpage to help students navigate the process of making a report and accessing online resources.
Things we are already working on for summer and fall include a Staff Summit June 10, 1-5 pm, Fall Faculty Summit, date TBD, developing a process for the analysis of data from the Sexual Assault Climate Survey, and monitoring the Department of Education for anticipated revised regulations for Title IX.
Sharing a special message and opportunity from It’s On Us new chapter president, Adoree Benke:
It's On Us is a national organization with chartered locations on college campuses around the nation with one located here at St. Edward’s. Our team is made up of passionate St. Edward’s students who are working to raise awareness of sexual violence on college campuses, teach students how to be appropriate but safe bystanders, and more. We are currently accepting applications for Fall 2022 through May 6th at 11:59 pm. You can access the application form here or under the "Forms" sections of our It's On Us page on Collegiate Link.
The next monthly update will come in August when we start the Fall semester (archived communication found here)! You can make a complaint or express concern about a student or employee and it can be anonymous if needed. You can also see SEU’s Annual Security Report with crime statistics and Daily Crime and Fire Logs.
