Raven Bridges, Most Active Participant, 2022

Participation is the cornerstone of Project Success.  We offer many activities throughout the year.  Points are assigned to each activity in our area plus working with tutors in the Tutoring & Writing Center.  Our activities may include using our study area, computer lab, attending cultural events, workshops, college visits as well as seeing one’s counselor regularly. 

"As a member of Project Success I take participation very seriously. This organization does all they can to give me the tools to succeed. My only job is to take part in the events that help me strive better through school. If I ever have any questions I can go to my trusted counselor to follow up on my academic career path. I'm grateful to have such an amazing staff by my side." - Raven Bridges


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, study skills, stress management and financial literacy.
