Student Support Services

Siena Heights University has a long and successful history of educating first-generation college students. Part of that history includes Student Support Services, a federally funded program on our Adrian campus. SSS provides opportunities for academic development, assists students with basic college requirements and serves to motivate students toward the successful completion of their postsecondary education. The goal of SSS is to increase the college retention and graduation rates of its participants and help students make the transition from one level of higher education to the next.

Michele Buku
Director of Student Support Services

“I do whatever I can to help you graduate from Siena Heights with a bachelor's degree… We are more than just a freshmen program… we continue throughout the entire time you are here; we check on you academically, we help you with financial aid… We have a freshmen transition scholars program where we [invite] freshmen on campus two weeks prior to school… we are caring… we can cross through the departments to get the services that you need.”
