The Mission of the Student Success Commons

The Student Success Commons is an integrated, active space that includes the library, tutoring services, a writing center, student success coaches, and easy access to the Office of Student Accessibility Services.

The SSC Team offers math, writing, and science tutoring, as well as support for online learning, study tips, and time management skills. Among other things, our success coaches are here to help you find the information you need to make your academic path as smooth as possible. Our knowledgeable librarian is an excellent resource for finding the material you need when you need it, and our campus space encourages group learning, while still offering quiet spaces for personal studying. 

As #YourPathToSuccess the SSC offers the resources and guidance students need to enhance learning outside of the classroom and support to reach academic and personal goals!
