Our program’s mission is to increase college retention and graduation rates for eligible students.  We offer first year students:

  • Mentoring from an upperclass student leader, who can help you make a successful transition to college.
  • You will start SSS with a small group of first-time freshmen who share many of your experiences.  They'll become your support system as well as your friends.
  • Peer-led workshops on time management, study skills, paying for college, budgeting, personal strengths, getting involved, and campus resources.
  • Professional staff who will provide guidance on academic skills, financial aid, and money management.
  • A $500 scholarship for each semester of successful participation as a freshmen or sophomore (you must have unmet financial need).
