The Office of Student Success is designed to introduce new students to one of the most exciting and critical journeys in life – your college experience. With the guidance and support of academic advisors, you will embark on an intellectual and holistic journey at DSU that will yield a challenging, rewarding and equally enjoyable social experience.
The Office of Student Success introduces students to their college experience by providing a collegial and academically enriched environment. As the point of entry for freshmen and incoming transfers, our support programs facilitate ongoing student engagement while promoting intellectual growth and development. The Office of Student Success encourages social integration through a variety of programs designed to assist students in succeeding during their DSU experience, as they progress toward graduation.
Housed on the second floor of the William C. Jason Library, our programs are formed to support students’ academic needs and to help them succeed during their first year and beyond.
