New Student Success Center Website!

Dear Students,

We are excited to announce the launch of the Student Success Center’s website! Our goal is to provide a virtual one-stop experience where physical sciences students can learn about academic enrichment programs, access resources that enrich the student experience and take advantage of professional development opportunities.

For those who ask, “What is the Student Success Center,” it’s an initiative created by you—the students! The Center was conceived from feedback from physical sciences students, and it supports an inclusive learning environment, as well as provides professional development services to undergraduate and graduate students. The Center will connect students with internship opportunities in industry, organize alumni events and initiatives, and offer guidance to students for developing meaningful career paths. The Center is under construction and will be open during winter quarter 2020.
