Sahara applied and was accepted into the SSS - Student Support Services program at Tech. I am so glad I talked her into this. They have workshops to help with skills for note taking, writing papers, studying, and have tutoring. Tutoring is available to anyone at Tech for free, but you get whoever is available. In SSS, she will have a group that is a constant throughout the year/s. They also have parties, field trips and get-togethers. She will also have an advisor to help her make a plan for her years there. Someone more in tune to what she wants and needs unlike the advisor who signs up your classes in 15 minutes and you never see them again. To me, it's almost like an extension to high school. Which in her case, being 17 to start, I think it will be a great thing.
