SOS Assessment Cycle

Personal Assessments

Student Outreach Services also provides personal and professional assessment tools to assist in determining or confirming a major, skill sets, or abilities at Hendrix by using self-testing such as the:

  • Strong Interest Inventory, $25.00, One Time Fee
  • Thomas Kilmann Conflict Style Assessment, $15.00, One Time Fee

All assessments are available to currently enrolled students. Schedule an appointment with the Director of Student Outreach Services to participate.

Operation Reach Out

Occasionally, students have difficulty with needs they cannot meet. To assist in aiding these students, SOS provides students with basic personal care items upon referral or request through Operation Reach Out (ORO). An analysis of a student’s personal needs is done and a sponsorship on a case-by-case basis is determined for a set amount of time. A complete financial assessment of the student is required to be eligible for the program.

SOS also aids students who cannot go home during the holidays such as international students and athletes, by providing holiday meals to those who notify in advance. SOS refers to soup kitchens and food pantries in the community as is necessary.

Finally, SOS also collects new or gently used clothing, accessories, and shoes for students in need. These donations are laundered or cleaned prior to student ownership and sizes vary from small to XXX-Large with an emphasis on Medium, Large, and X-Large.

Limited Transportation

SOS provides limited transportation for students in regard to legal, medical, or prescription purposes. SOS can assist in connecting students to where they need to go if advanced planning occurs.
