Are you a new or reoccurring Sacramento City College (SCC) student and need or want some support, advice or just a little bit of encouragement? Then look no further, for you are in luck! Sacramento City College has just the right program.
R.I.S.E (Respect, Integrity, Self determination & Education) is a student resource program. Transferring and regular students can benefit from this program. If you visit their website http://www.wserver.scc.losrios.edu/~rise/index/index.htm it states that their vision is, "to provide a place where students feel valued, respected, at ease and confident." According to this website, R.I.S.E has a philosophy and is this, "We believe all students can successfully complete college if they choose to." In order to accomplish this task, however, there must be a commitment made that includes sacrifice, focus, personal responsibility and a lot of hard work.
R.I.S.E has been established and put into action and made available to any and all students so that they have a place to share their victories, defeats, opinions and talents; not only that but this program offers a wide variety of resources to students that they can use in order to make their college experience successful.
Some of the resources that offered by R.I.S.E is tutoring, community involvement, college tours, and the "hook-up" on campus to competitive four year universities. R.I.S.E is a program that dispenses many perks to students. The most popular perk is the book loaning. Book loaning is very limited and only offered at the beginning of a semester. Personalized or easy to meet counselors is another popular perk offered. As mentioned above, they offer college tour which are low cost or free and to attend you must write an essay on why you should go.
Valerie Moore, a staff on R.I.S.E says that "R.I.S.E is a home away from home, where students get connected to the right resources to insure their academic success."
For any reasons you need or want to see the truth behind this program's abilities, they do provide a wall of pictures. This wall includes all the people who have received help during transferring schools. At the bottom of the picture is the university they were accepted into. The wall was made to show the impact of college resources and means that it's not impossible to get into a good university as long as you have respect, integrity, self determination and education. http://www.accesslocal.tv/2012/12/10/sacramento-city-college-r-i-s-e/
