Student Support Services provides individualized advising services to participating students within the SSS program. Advisors serve as secondary academic advisors to students with declared majors and primary academic advisors to students deciding on a major. Not only do SSS advisors provide academic and registration assistance for students, but they also provide customized success planning, financial aid and scholarship assistance, part-time job and career assistance, and serve as resources for graduate school exploration.
Advisors are available Monday - Friday, 8:00 - 5:00, by appointment and walk-in.
The Student Support Services Computer Lab in the Memorial Student Affairs Building provides SSS students with access to 10 computers. Whether students need the Internet, word processing, or special presentation software like PowerPoint, the SSS lab allows students to work on classroom assignments and projects on campus.
The lab also houses four testing rooms designated for testing with accommodation for students with disabilities.
The computer lab is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The SSS lab is not open when the campus is closed (such as holidays, breaks, or snow days).
If you have any questions about the computer lab, please contact the lab at 865-8214.
Student Support Services has a variety of opportunities for students to gain leadership experience.
Student Advisory Board
Student Support Services is fortunate to have among its program participating students who are often talented in idea generation, providing useful feedback, and understanding what may make student services even more useful. Student Support Services utilizes a select number of students as an advisory and/or feedback tool for the office through the Student Advisory Board. Students involved in the Student Advisory Board gain the opportunity to provide ideas and feedback regarding more student-friendly services and/or procedures, programming opportunities and details, and develop valuable leadership skills.
