Student Support Services—TRiO

Student Support Services (SSS) is a federally funded TRiO program designed to help students attain success. Located on the second floor of the Ben Alexander Student Learning Center, the SSS program helps students identify majors, complete degree plans, develop goals, and explore transfer options and career choices. In the SSS computer lab, students can write papers, do Internet research, take career and interest inventories, improve reading, writing and math skills, or complete a study skills assessment. Special SSS workshops are designed around student requests and include such topics as test anxiety, stress management, conflict resolution, and learning styles. Other SSS services include free tutoring and mentoring, trips to four-year institutions, and tickets to cultural activities such as plays, symphonies, ballets, concerts, and museums. All applicants must meet at least one of the following criteria to participate in SSS: first generation student; in need of financial aid; or physically / academically challenged.
