Student Solutions Center

The purpose of the Student Solutions Center is to help you over any hurdles you may run into on campus by connecting you with the right resources.

This new center works in conjunction with Student Life, serving as a resource and referral location for students who find themselves struggling academically, socially, or financially. The goal for the staff is to solve the issue, either in their own office or by connecting them to the right person who can help them.

DaVina Hamilton is the Director of the Student Solutions Center. Kara Barber is the Associate Director.

The center is located on the main floor of the Davis Student Commons, across from the Buccaneer Game room.

If you have any questions, please contact the Center at 256-7700 or
