Make the Most of Your Spring

Here's How to Make the Most of Your Spring Semester at SWOSU

Try "Spring Cleaning"

Organize your physical and academic space. What really works for you in terms of studying — dedicated time at the library, using note-cards? How can I organize my room to be more efficient and set up reminders? 

Assess Your Limits

Does your spring semester load make sense in light of your experiences in the fall  spring athletes have a different schedule demands than fall athletes. Are you overextending yourself with an ambitious course load or long working hours?

Control Your Spending

Look at your yearly budget  if you spent more than half of your financial resources intended for the whole year, then it’s time to make some hard choices and rein in your spending. Do you really need to use your car and its attached gas and insurance costs?

Address Your "Issues"

Do you have health or mental concerns that you need to get under control? Be proactive with a visit to SWOSU's free services.


The mission of the SWOSU Student Success Center (SSC) is to increase student retention and degree completion by supporting evolving individual student needs to achieve their academic, career and personal goals. The SSC facilitates student successes by fostering faculty-staff-student partnerships, and providing innovative, data-informed academic and career programming. The SSC provides pre-advising, life skills and learning services complementary to campus support services.


The goals of the SWOSU Student Success Center are to:

  • Develop student skills, habits and attitudes necessary for a successful academic tenure in preparation for career experiences.
  • Promote student persistence and retention in campus settings, groups and technology resources.
  • Provide a variety of research-based instructional approaches to mediate content and knowledge deficits.
  • Facilitate student leadership in study groups, engagement workshops and student-led events.
  • Assess the effectiveness of the programming and evolve in response to student need.

The Southwestern Oklahoma State University (SWOSU) Student Success Center is funded by a federal grant from the U.S. Department of Education. Total funding for the five-year project is $2,178,948.
