SOUTH SIOUX CITY, NE - The South Sioux City extended campus of Northeast Community College brought community services directly to their students at a fair held on campus recently.

The S.O.S. (Services, Opportunities, Support) Fair featured more than a dozen community organizations and four Northeast departments, all with informational booths for students to learn about the services, support and involvement opportunities available in the South Sioux City community.

“We know that college success is impacted by so much more than the classroom,” said Dr. Cyndi Hanson, South Sioux City extended campus executive director. “We wanted to provide an opportunity for students to connect to organizations that can help with their non-academic needs as well as remind them of the services provided by the College.”

More than 125 students and staff participated. Hanson said many students made connections that will aid in their educational success.

“The success of the S.O.S. Fair was a direct result of the support of faculty and staff in recognizing the value and encouraging student participation.”

Organizations that participated in the fair include Northeast Nebraska Community Action Agency, Aventure Staffing, Sioux Community Health Center, United Way of Siouxland and others.

Northeast Community College’s South Sioux City extended campus is located at 1001 College Way. It offers more than 20 degree programs that can be completed in South Sioux City as well as a variety of student organizations.
