Student Support Services on Campus
Colleges and universities are a student’s new ‘home away from home’, and as such, must provide comprehensive support to their student body. That support comes in many different forms and knowing what is available should be part of the research a family completes before selecting a college. Support may be of several types – academic support, health and wellness support, professional support, and social support. Applicants need to have an awareness of both who they are and what they need in order to be successful as independent college students. Don’t be blinded by the beautiful buildings, the exciting faculty, and the excellent facilities; look beyond the obvious and ask lots of questions about your options, should you need some help while enrolled.
