Campus Life

While students head to campus to attend classes, they can use the school's electronic platform known as SCI Connect to update their profile, see what badges they have earned and look for externships. The Connect page is also available to recent graduates and alumni and helps build connections between students and potential employers. Other support that students can find through SCI includes advising, financial aid and IT services.
