Campus Spotlight

W.jpgSPOTLIGHT: Student Success Center


As the culmination of the academic year kicks off, students are encouraged to seek out the help of a major resource on campus, the Student Success Center.  The Student Success Center encompasses a series of student support offices on campus including Career Services, Disability Services, Study Abroad, Counseling Center and more. Located on the main floor of UW1, it is a primary site of the University's commitment to Connected Learning, one of UW Bothell's 3 C's Methods of Distinction, which also include Community Engagement and Cross-Disciplinarity.  . Other resources for students include the Writing and Communications Center to help with everything writing and communications from APA formatting to in-class presentations, and the Quantitative Skills Center for all things quantitative reasoning. The Counseling center also offers professional, one-on-one counseling if you’re feeling stressed, dealing with personal difficulties, or just feel lost in general. It can be difficult sometimes to seek out support when we’re struggling. Know that the UW Bothell’s Student Success Center and other student services are available to you, no matter what program you’re in.  Good luck with Spring Quarter!

The Student Success Center (SSC), located on the main floor of UW1, is a primary site of the University’s commitment to “Connected Learning.” Professional and student staff in the SSC serve UWB graduate and undergraduate students by connecting them to people, answers, programs, resources, and support across campus to enhance students’ learning.  Trained to help students articulate and achieve their goals, SSC staff ask questions that challenge and support students’ learning processes to identify personal strengths, explore directions for major and career paths, work through personal challenges, and take advantage of high impact learning opportunities.  Come visit us!
