As students in SSSP transition from high school through college, SSSP offers a variety of resources to guide you during your college journey. We believe in supporting your stay at Brandeis socially, personally and academically. We encourage you to explore and use the following services throughout the academic year:
Our team of advisors works with students in many different areas outside of academic support. We collaborate with several departments on campus to expand your network of resources to support you in making decisions about college life and beyond.
Career Planning: With the support of the Hiatt Career Center, we offer students guidance exploring their fields of interest. Many students use these services to find internships, prepare for interviews, write resumes and cover letters, and even find jobs. We have helped students prepare applications for the WOW Summer Internship Program.
Graduate School Guidance: Deciding whether or not graduate school is for you, which programs to apply to, composing a personal statement and getting recommendations can be overwhelming. To help you alleviate the stress, we offer the GRE preparatory course which is taught by Graduate Assistants who are part of the SSSP staff. Our students attend Graduate School Fairs and Law School Forums in the Boston area. The key to success during this process is starting the graduate school search early in your junior year.
Financial Aid: We know how hard it is to fund your college career. With the support of Student Financial Services, we provide assistance with financial aid and help finding scholarships. Workshops on filling your FAFSA and doing your taxes are also available each semester.
Textbook and Resource Library: SSSP has built a small very effective resource and textbook library. You are welcome to borrow books from the most popular classes offered including Sociology, Calculus, Economics, Biology, and many more. The resource library also has a selective collection of medical, business and law school books. For a full list of these textbooks and resources, check in with one of the SSSP staff.
