Enterprise, AL – Enterprise State Community College (ESCC) is pleased to announce the development of its new Student Success and Counseling Center (SSCC). The center is designed to enhance student success, improve retention, and increase graduation rates. ESCC has redesigned and expanded its Counseling Services Department by establishing the new center which launched this fall. The SSCC provides programs and services that assist students with successfully completing their program of study. The center also guides students in meeting their transfer and career goals by providing academic advisement, major exploration, success workshops, transfer assistance, career planning and other integral services.
Since its establishment, the SSCC has already seen an increase in student interest and participation in the services the center offers. In addition to current offerings, the SSCC is in Phase 1 of developing a Career/Transfer Suite where students can go to complete career interest inventories, search for jobs, complete resumes, and search for information about the transfer college or university of their choice. Additionally, peer tutors are being secured to assist students with tutoring in core academic subjects.
Dr. Felisha Ford, Director of Counseling, states, “It is important to us at ESCC to ensure that our students are fully equipped with the knowledge and skills required to meet the demands of furthering their education at a four-year college or university. We also want to transition them successfully from college to a career. We feel strongly that the Student Success and Counseling Center is being designed to help students to do just that.”
