The Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi Programs for Academic Student Support (PASS) held its second Open House on Friday, Oct. 31, at the Glasscock Student Success Center.

More than 70 students and staff participated at the event, which provided an opportunity for students, faculty, and staff to come and learn what Student Support Services, the Title V-Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Outreach, Access, and Retention (SOAR STEM) Program, and McNair Scholars Program have to offer students on campus.  Several students signed up for various PASS services.

“The goal of this event is to provide information about the programs for student support, not only to students, but also to faculty and staff across campus”, said Leslee Schauer, Director of the SOAR STEM Program. “Our hope is that students who are not currently utilizing the PASS services will take advantage, and faculty and staff can learn about a great resource on campus.”

The Halloween themed Open House included several activities including a spooktacular Halloween costume contest, pin the heart on the mummy, minute to win it games, and a coloring contest. Students also had the opportunity to visit with programs housed within PASS about available services, enjoy food and treats, play games, and interact with other students.
