Student Success Center a Valuable Asset to Students

Student Success Center

On September 26, 2016, the new Larry and Dee Dee Gianchetta Student Success Center officially opened its doors to students. The center offers a one-stop shop for all SoBA advising, career services, graduate programs, internships and scholarships.

In the first six weeks of operation, 1,670 students visited for undergraduate services and approximately 240 for graduate services.

“The center has been really valuable,” said MBA student John Seils. “As a graduate student, it’s great to have all the resources there that I need. I’ve been able to get help with my upcoming course schedule, resume and internship opportunities all in one place.”

In the weeks since its opening, both graduate and undergraduate students have been taking full advantage of the new central location on the lower floor of the Gallagher Business Building, just behind Biz Buzz.

“I don’t have to find my way around the third floor anymore.  It’s much more convenient!” remarked another SoBA student.

The Student Success Center will hold a grand opening in December 1 at 3 p.m. in GBB L35 to celebrate its first successful semester.  Bites and beverages will be served.
