(Finn, 1998; Janiga&Costenbader, 2002).

Apart from specific departments, faculty also plays a key role in making college life easier or otherwise for students with challenges. It must be noted that students with disabilities have often cited negative faculty attitude as one of the reasons they found college experience unpleasant (Dowrick et al., 2005) Similarly students with mental illnesses or LD may also need additional support from faculty and hence training of teachers should also be an important part of the support chain. This means that faculty must understand the challenges faced by various student groups and provided adequate training in effective communication and resolution.

Students with perception of social support from friends and parents are more likely to succeed in college than their non-supported peers. (Dowrick et al., 2005) For this reason, support services departments on campus will often work along with families to ensure maximum success.

Students in American institutions of higher education today face numerous challenges ranging from disability problems and health issues to simple adjustment and transition difficulties. Thus the need for the presence of support services on the campus is even more profound today with student diversity on the rise. We have discussed the various specific problems that students can face in the campus and for which they might need support from different departments. However there are many other problems that students will regularly encounter on campus and for which they might approach the student affairs and student services department. They are not discussed in this article due to limited space available. But the article thoroughly discussed few very important issues for which support is needed and explained how support services work to resolve those problems.
