Student Success Coaching
The Student Success Coaching program was implemented to assist freshmen in transitioning to college life during their freshman year. Students are linked to a Student Success Coach who can assist them with anything college related such as surviving roommate drama, getting connected to resources on campus such as student organizations, the Career Center, etc. We can also help you refine your college student success skills, including time management and managing test anxiety. Meetings last approximately 30-60 minutes once a week.
