We’re in your corner
Life doesn’t always work out the way you want it to. Classes sometimes turn out to be tougher than you thought. Financial issues occcur when you’re least able to handle them. Emergencies—academic and personal—happen, and when they do, you need to know someone’s got your back.
That’s why we’re here.
We can help you navigate through life’s ups and downs and make sure you have the support you need to succeed inside and outside of the classroom.

When you’re faced with a crisis that you don’t know how to handle, life can quickly spiral out of control.
Let us help you keep your academic journey on track.
If it’s more of a financial or personal issue, we can direct you to the right services and resources—both on campus and off—and make sure you’ve got what you need to weather the crisis.
We can connect you with a host of other community partners and services, all dedicated to helping you in times of trouble. We have a food pantry for students who are struggling to put meals on the table. Our partners have additional financial resources and options that may be available to assist you.
