WELCOME NEW STAFF!
Changes in SSS!
Linda Leech left SSS last May to start her new job as Director of Upward Bound Math/Science at San Antonio College in San Antonio, TX. We are in the process of finding her replacement and you'll be notified as soon as a candidate is hired. If Linda was your SSS Advisor, please meet with Margaret until the new Advisor starts.
And, as you'll notice the instant you walk into SSS, there is now an enhanced Student Worker station where 2 of our 4 Student Workers will work.
Johannah, Mai, Megan and Sarh are here to help you!
Please sign in and check in at the new student work station for advisor meetings. Carla will still be available to help when needed but start your visit at SSS at the student worker station. When not helping out in SSS, SSS Student Workers will be assigned to the Computer Lab in WC321.
Their job will be to help with printing, miscellaneous computer questions, and to make sure the environment is conducive to studying and tutoring. Rules that have always been in place but will be more regularly enforced include NO eating, NO cell phone use, and using equipment and space for academic purposes only (NOFacebook, Youtube, etc.). If you have questions about these rules, please speak with Carla or your SSS Advisor.
If you haven't already done so be sure to stop by, introduce yourself and welcome our new staff!

This year Student Support Services is dedicated to providing you with information regarding "Financial Literacy".
Check out the CashCourse on the SSS website. You can find the link under "Links" or go to www.cashcourse.org/trio.
WHY THIS WEBSITE? Financial literacy is an essential life skill for the 21st century. This is especially important for college students who on campus and in real life will have more financial choices and opportunities to be made than any generation before. NEFE (the National Endowment for Financial Education) is responding to this challenge by offering to college students and recent graduates this Web site that contains comprehensive, non-commercial information to help their financial decisions be informed ones.

Looking for Newsletter contributions from... YOU!
The SSS Newsletter is a great resource and included in it's pages every month is an abundance of helpful information about school, campus and upcoming events. Still, as exciting as this information can be, it left our newsletter a little, well, dry.
THAT'S WHERE YOU COME IN! Please submit any stories, poems, letters, reviews of plays, concerts or speakers you've seen, even artwork to be included in the monthly newsletter.
Submit your work by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If your entry is approved for submission it will appear in the next SSS Success Newsletter!
