"Student Support Services holds a very important place in my heart.  Not only does it help alleviate a little of the daunting cost of college, but it has provided me with a safe haven for dealing with personal issues.  I find SSS to be a caring place where I can go to talk about anything that I need to and get the advice and help I require.  I'm glad that Beloit College has this program, and I don't know how I could've survived Freshman year without it."
