CCS and many students on campus have provided different, free and beneficial resources for all students.
Many students don’t realize there are many opportunities on our campus that don’t cost a penny and can be quite beneficial for you. Being a college student can be extremely expensive with the cost of tuition and books, and simply just fundamental things like groceries and rent.
Cindy Havko, one of the counselors in the Falls Gateway explained that there are free counseling if you need someone to talk to or ask about your school life.
When having trouble in a class, there are free tutors and mentors in building 30 that are willing to help.
“Students have to be willing read the reader boards,” said Havko. “It’s up to the students to take advantage of the resources on campus.”
Our campus also has food resources available to students. Nathan Evans and Zayed Mohideen are the ones that you’d look in Associated Student Government if you have questions, Evans is in charge of our campus Food Bank.
If interested, up to 15 pounds of food 3 times a quarter can be taken by students, no questions asked.
The Food Bank is located in the Student Union Building right after the Mosaic Room on the right.
“It’s been a program for about four years now,” said Evans. “But most students don’t even know that it’s here.”
It is very important that people know about this resource because it could help a lot of people with their grocery expenses.
If you are in need of free health services, the SCC Health Clinic welcomes both campuses.
If the drive seems a bit unappealing to you, your student ID also serves as a bus pass.
“We’re a good resource,” said Lomanaco. “Anyone can come in and learn about our vaccines and illness testing.”
The Health Clinic has a Nurse Practitioner in office who can diagnose possible illnesses and administer shots like the flu shot, booster shots, and Hepatitis B shots. They can also help with minor injury or give sports physicals.
Another thing about the Health Clinic is that therapists are available to speak to, but appointments have to be made first.
The Health Clinic is located in Building 7, room 118 on the SCC Campus. They are open from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
If you have any other questions about the Health Clinic, you can visit the CCS Website or stop in to their office.
When looking for a specific type of resource that our school offers, students and faculty can check the CCS website under the Student Resources tab.
Students can learn about different resources and what each one has to offer such as workforce programs, career counseling, an LGBT support center, as well as disability support.
