SSC Success Series

Success is a series of small things

What does it take to be successful in college? That question is answered both inside and outside the classroom, as you take advantage of the many resources and opportunities UofL has to offer.

The SSC Success Series offers a wide variety of meetups, events and workshops to help you connect with other students, add to your student success toolbox, and possibly win some prizes along the way.

Download the "Welcome Week & SSC Success Series" Guide in the UofL New Cards App for all the details you need to participate.
