“The SSS Program has a lot of programs that are made widely available for me. For instance, the fact that the program allows students, such as myself, to receive first priority on registration has helped me think thoroughly of the classes I need to take each semester. Although I have not been in the program long, I am slowly learning to try and take advantage of this experience as much as possible.”

- Sarah Molina, Business, Sophomore (SSS REG)

“They have helped me improve my subject learning by providing me with the tutors, guidance and assistance that I needed.

But SSS has done so remarkably and without them, I wouldn't have been as successful as I am today.”

“Coming into college, I was looking for some assistance as far as how to pace my semesters; so that I finish in four years. The SSS- STEM program has helped me with each of my semesters by giving me an advisor that has helped me out with some decisions I've made and also financially by allowing me to check-out books for some of the classes I was taking.”

- Najeem Ansary, Civil Engineering, Sophomore

“Student Support Services has truly been a life changing experience. The staff works extremely hard to connect their students to various resources. The workshops and seminars the program offers allows students to further educate themselves and get connected to other resources that can be of benefit to them in the long run. This program has helped me grow financially, mentally, and spiritually. It is an amazing feeling when you know you have people who are willing to go the extra mile for you and have your education as a priority.”
