Student Excellence in Academics and Multiculturalism logo


Student Excellence in Academics and Multiculturalism (SEAM) is a fun and intellectually rewarding way to start at the University of Minnesota for first-year students in the College of Liberal Arts (CLA); College of Biological Sciences (CBS); and College of Food, Agricultural, and Natural Resource Sciences (CFANS).

SEAM will help you ease into a large, world-class universiy through seminars and small learning communities with a friendly multicultural vibe. SEAM seminars are for first-year students who share similar interests and a desire to study in a multicultural environment. The seminars raise and explore issues from multiple perspectives, while SEAM faculty challenge students to think, talk, and react.
