Social Science Academic Resource Center (SSARC)
The Social Sciences Academic Resource Center (SSARC) was created over a decade ago to assist students in the School of Social Sciences in obtaining the appropriate information to select a career and/or graduate school program, generate professional contacts, and learn how to gain a competitive edge during their undergraduate years.
The Social Sciences Academic Resource Center provides valuable resources for undergraduates in the School of Social Sciences and is conveniently located across from the Social Sciences Office of Student Affairs in the new Social and Behavioral Sciences Gateway building. Friendly and knowledgeable SSARC staff can guide you to the information you need in a relaxed, pleasant environment.
