You need a success coach
Success coaches are knowledgable upperclassmen who are trained to help you with anything you’re dealing with. They can give you advice about academics, finances, personal goals and more. It’s totally up to you what you discuss with your coach during your 30-minute session.
You can meet your coach in person, talk on the phone or meet via Zoom. Your coach is there to help you succeed — it’s up to you to make the first move by scheduling an appointment.
Who is my coach?
The Student Success Center works hard to match you with a coach who will benefit you. If you find a coach you prefer to the one you were assigned, go ahead and meet with them instead (no hard feelings, we promise). There are coaches from all different backgrounds and experiences, and whoever you meet with will be ready to discuss your situation, and help understand and benefit you the best they can.
