What is the NSSC?

The Neighborhood Student Success Collaborative is the assistant dean's office for most freshmen and sophomores on campus. Not only do the NSSC advisors serve as the primary advisors for all No Preference students, they assist students in all majors to select or change to a major that is appropriate for them.

One of the most important decisions you will make as an undergraduate student is the selection of your major. Another important decision is your choice of career. Many students need help in beginning to make these decisions. A very appropriate place to turn for this help is your closest  Neighborhood Engagement Center. You can also email us at
