The Student Success Center and the Educational Advancement Program (EAP) will hold a joint open house from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Thursday at their new locations on the third floor of Greve Hall.
At the same time, Career Services—located in nearby Dunford Hall—will hold its sixth annual cookout, offering hotdogs, hamburgers, and veggie burgers.
“We encourage the campus community to come out, learn about these offices, get to know the staff and see what services they provide,” said Anton Reece, director of the Student Success Center.
Those attending the open house also can pick up free giveaways, register for door prizes, and take a tour of the new Greve Hall facilities.
The Student Success Center provides tutoring and academic coaches who can help students improve their studying, test-taking, and time management skills. The center also oversees the UT LEAD program.
EAP is a federally funded TRIO program designed for students with demonstrated academic need who are also first-generation college students, from low-income families, or who have physical or learning disabilities. The program offers tutoring, academic coaching and counseling and offers special sections of math, biology, and chemistry.
Career Services offers career counseling, career exploration classes, interest and personality assessments, and resources that can help students choose a major and career. The office also has the HIRE-A-VOL system that can help students identify part-time jobs, internships, and full-time positions.
Greve Hall was remodeled this summer to accommodate a variety of offices, most of which had to move out of facilities that are due to be demolished in order to accommodate the new Student Union project.
