Welcome to Student Services


The Vision of Student Services is dedicated to help students be successful in life. The staff in the Division believe that a significant amount of learning at college occurs outside of the classroom. In addition to utilizing the Student Advising Center or the Counseling and Advocacy Center for support and assistance, we encourage students to participate in programs and activities sponsored by Student Activities, the Intercultural Center, and Athletics. Enjoying living in Student Housing, seeking medical help from our Student Health Center, or taking advantage of the quality care offered to our students with children in the Child Care Center, we focus on all the ways we can help students be successful. Inclusive of the Office of the Dean of Student Services Office, Student Services offers quality services, and opportunities for students to have well-balanced college experience.
