Student Success Center

General Information

Welcome to the Student Success Center, a program that seeks to encourage the success of all students in all areas by providing holistic, integrated, on-campus student services.  These services are geared toward helping you find support to grow as a vibrant and academically confident student; find purpose that will help you bring your faith, academic, and job pursuits into harmony; and find hope that comes from insight, healing, and personal growth.  Combining all we do into one office means that we can equip and empower you in a way that is convenient and connected.  It also means we can join our specialties together to provide better quality support, because we know that helping you succeed is a multi-layered process.  So when you are presented with challenges and questions during college, we are well equipped to help you grow through them.  Of course, we can partner with you in the small things too- before they turn into something bigger.  Whatever the case, you can trust our staff to collaboratively provide support that makes sense for you.
