Student Support Service thanked for making unexpected college career easier by providing extensive guidance

October 31, 2014

Thank you Student Support Service (SSS)! I want to recognize all the SSS coaches; Rose, Zio, Linda and Chuayi are the best college coaches anyone could ask for.

The SSS coaches are all about encouraging students academically, personally, emotionally and sometimes financially.

First of all, I want to thank Rose for always being there for me and continuously working with me throughout my four years at UW-River Falls. I also want to thank the rest of the SSS staff for constantly giving me positive support towards my academics.

The SSS program has helped me in so many ways in college, especially being a first generation college student and not knowing what to expect or how to deal with any of it.

SSS has made the process easier by knowing that someone was going to walk along my side through college. I had many fears coming to college, especially because it was never in my family’s plans. But I chose a different path and it was one of the best decisions I ever made.

The SSS program has been very generous in helping many students be part of the UWRF community. I am thankful for all the great events that SSS has helped me be part of like cultural events, community services, mini study sessions, retreats, study skills workshops and much more.

Because of the SSS program, I am truly blessed to say that I have met wonderful people who have made a significant change in my life.

The friends I have met through the program continue to be my friends to this day. Thanks again Rose, Zio, Linda and Chuayi!
