When you join SSS, you connect with an advisor who will help you chart your academic and professional goals, overcome obstacles and face challenges head-on. SSS students have access to a variety of academic, personal and cultural resources that help them grow as students and individuals. And as an added benefit, all of the services are provided free of charge. They include:

  • Academic support.
  • Personal development advising.
  • Financial literacy advising.
  • Career development.
  • Workshops on academic, career and personal topics.
  • Cultural events with other SSS students, such as dance performances, theatre, concerts, museums and sporting events.
  • Preparation for graduate and professional school, including help with researching your options, writing your personal statement, obtaining letters of recommendation, support for visiting graduate and professional schools in other cities, and loaning you test preparation materials (for such tests as the GRE, GMAT, LSAT, PCAT, etc.)
  • Tutoring through the Academic Resource Center (ARC).
