Lobo Den Freshmen Center
The Lobo Den at Sul Ross State University is located on the first floor of Lawrence Hall. This freshmen center has been established to help meet the needs of first and second year students at the university. The Lobo Den works closely with faculty from across campus to facilitate initial first-year advising. Additionally, the center houses advising for undeclared students and for students with developmental course needs as established by the Texas Success Initiative (TSI). The Lobo Den also provides a faculty mentoring program in conjunction with learning communities which are piloted through a Title V development grant from the United States Department of Education. The newly created LC Planning Committee is strategizing for future learning community options at Sul Ross.
This first-year experience at Sul Ross is designed to assist new students with their transition to college and provide them with the skills that will help them succeed throughout their academic careers. The program also gives new students chances to meet other new students and develop peer relationships, and an opportunity to work closely with both faculty and advisors.
