New MSU office helps students utilize its resources

WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) - A new office opened at Midwestern State University this semester that officials say will help students connect with all the resources it offers.

Some of the resources of the new Student Rights and Responsibilities office can help students connect with the new food pantry, tutoring, and counseling.

"We can connect them with resources on campus and in the local community as well," Dail Neely, Director of the office of Student Rights and Responsibilities said. "It's almost a one-stop shop for students to better help them and better serve them."

Neely said it offers everything the Student Conduct Center did plus new elements. One of the goals Neely said he looks to achieve is to help students focus on school and overcome any personal problems they may face.

"It allows me to basically talk to that student with what's going on in their life and see if their university or community can offer support to help them with whatever that is," Neely said.

Students like Hailey Nunez, a freshman at MSU, said they had trouble locating all the resources the university offered.

"Actually, I don't know all of the resources that we have," Nunez said. "Everything is kind of confusing cause it's a small campus but it's still big compared to high school."

Nunez said she looks forward to using the resources in the future.

"I'm glad that they're all available to be used because people have so many needs in college but they wouldn't be able to be met without the resources provided by the school," Nunez said. "I would use the tutoring definitely for the biology and math classes."

The hours for the Student Rights and Responsibilities office are 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. It is located inside the Clark Student Center where the Admissions Office is.
