On Wednesday, Oct. 6 at noon, campus officials and donors Dave and Ann Hawk will participate in a ribbon cutting for the new Dave and Ann Hawk Student Success Center.
The new facility is located on the lower level of the Study Learning Center and has been identified as a key means of providing high-quality, responsive, student-centered services that will increase retention and support academic and personal success.
The newly renovated area will house the campus' financial aid office, veterans' affairs, health and wellness center, counseling services, a learning center, peer tutoring areas, a mini-computer lab, career services, leadership/personal development services and a conference room.
Those involved with the project see it as an opportunity to enhance the campus' existing student programs, as well as offer new programs and services that will foster partnerships and empower students by engaging them in a holistic life approach, promoting civic responsibility and enhancing their life foundation.
The center is named for campus alumni and "For the Future" campaign chairs, Dave and Ann Hawk, who donated $1 million to the new center.
Other donors include the Penn State Worthington Scranton Alumni Society, Eric and Mary Ann Linde, Lynn Moran and the Scranton Family.
Invited guests will be offered tours of the new center, following the dedication program and ribbon cutting ceremony.
