"SSS has provided me with support of every kind, including financial support, academic advice, supplemental class instruction, college and life counseling, etc. But the greatest benefits that I have received are the wisdom, and the motivation to succeed that the staff have provided me with."
"SSS has made a positive difference not only in my education but also in my life. SSS made possible the education I'm receiving, through academic, financial, and personal support; without them I wouldn't be here right now."
"SSS offered me the chance to change my life with a great college education. I would recommend SSS to other students because the benefits we get are helpful throughout the experience at Creighton"
