Students Transitioning for Academic Retention and Success (STARS) is a living learning community specifically developed to provide increased academic support for students seeking to achieve specific academic goals and ongoing academic success throughout college.
Students live together, enjoy taking two courses together during the first year, and experience both a freshmen Summer Bridge prior to the start of classes, and a sophomore Summer Bridge during the week following the first year. Each of these components is designed to help students build a strong community, become engaged in campus activities, and achieve academic success. Select students are invited to participate in STARS upon committing to UIS.
Participation in STARS cannot be combined with participation in other Living Learning Communities.
