Mark your calendars, because this year's United Way Day of Caring will be Friday, Sept. 15. ASU faculty and staff have traditionally been involved in a big way, and this year should be no different. Jill Bristow, Special Events Coordinator in University Advancement, is coordinating ASU's United Way activity this year ... contact her at 972-3362 or by email to volunteer for Day of Caring.

Student Support Services openings
Student Support Services, one of the federally-funded TRIO programs, provides students with academic and support services in a caring environment to ensure the completion of a baccalaureate degree. Once a student is accepted into SSS, they remain in the program until graduation. Services offered by SSS are all free and include advising, counseling, tutoring, supplemental instruction, mentoring, workshops, cultural enrichment events, and more. Currently, there are openings for SSS. To be considered, a student must be: a U.S. citizen, national or meet residence requirements for federal student aid; and have a need for academic support.
  In addition, a student must meet at least one of the following criteria:
* Be a first-generation college student
* Meet income guidelines
* Be an individual with a documented disability
  If you know of a student who might benefit from SSS, send them by the Smith Center for Excellence in Education, Room 111, to obtain an application or visit the web site for an application or call 870-972-3341 for more details.
