STAR Services

Students’ Temporary Assistance and Resources (STAR) is an organization that provides stability for students to pursue a fulfilling college experience. It does this by facilitating collaboration between organizations offering student support and increasing campus awareness of these programs.

The five points of the star are food, finances, clothing, housing, and connections.

If you are a student in need or know someone who needs assistance, here are a list of ways we can help:
