Student Support Services
"Project Success from the start taught me what to do and where to go for support. My counselor helps guide me in learning about IVCC and is there for me to receive academic, transfer and personal counseling. Project Success offers workshops that prepare me for classes and succeeding in my education. When considering my transfer opportunities, I will visit colleges both on-campus and off-campus. This also will help with making a decision about which college is best suited for me. Cultural events, tutoring, plus access to studying and computers in Project Success has taught me to work with others and prepare me for my future of working with victims and survivors as a legal advocate/lawyer. Thank you, Project Success!"
In the Fall and Spring semester workshops are offered on a variety of topics. Many of them deal with how to be a more successful student, stress management and financial literacy.
Project Success students are exposed to cultural events that may not be afforded to students from disadvantaged backgrounds. All events are free to Project Success participants. Past events have included:
- The Illusionists
- MoTown the Musical
- Blue Man Group
- Rock of Ages
- Million Dollar Quartet
- Navy Pier/Taste of Chicago
Each semester Project Success will introduce you to other college campuses by visiting Open House programs.
Where would you like to go? Let your counselor know. Recent visits include:
