College Students Must Visit The Student Services Center
Most colleges, universities, and institutions of higher education provide valuable resources (commonly known as student services) for students at their college. The strange thing is, many students don’t use them! The location where students go to find most resources that are designed to help them succeed is called a “One Stop,” “Student Center,” or “Student Services Center.” At these locations you can find many offices such as financial aid, transfer center, career center, Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS or EOP), health center, admissions and records, counseling or advising, psychological services, and many more.
Why take advantage of these College Resources?
- You pay for these resources when you pay for tuition
- College Counseling- Helps you stay on track with an educational plan
- Career Center- Helps you find a job, build a resume, and practice for a job interview
- Health Center- Provides minor medical attention including medicine, bandages, cough drops, etc
- Transfer Center- Helps connect community college students to a four-year university
- Financial Aid and EOPS- Helps you pay for school
- Admissions and Records- Helps you with things concerning your transcript, courses, and certifications
- Psychological Services- Helps students for free deal with issues and pressures that come up while in college. This is a great resource because most people needing to talk to a professional psychologist end up paying over $150 a session outside of school…students get it free.
There are many more reasons why you should take advantage of your on campus resources than what is listed here, but as you can see, visiting your Student Services Center will help you succeed and attain your goal sooner rather than later.
