    Office of Student Retention

    Surrounded By Opportunity - Next Steps to Success!

    Established in August 2017, the Office of Student Retention was created with the student in mind. Our primary focus is to assists students with a successful transition to the college environment. The retention staff is here to ensure that students are informed, engaged, and involved in their educational journey.  Our office helps students prepare for a successful semester, year and career by building on their strengths and providing resources to improve areas of weakness. 

    Remember, the first year of college is what you make it; it is the beginning of the collegiate experience and the path to future success. The Office of Student Retention is happy to help students navigate through this experience. Students are encouraged to utilize all of campus resources, including our office.
