The transition from high school to college can come as a surprise for many students, especially when it comes to academics. Students discover that they need to spend a lot more time studying and preparing for college classes. Every freshman is assigned a Success Coach to help identify and develop skills to assist in the transition to college, both academically and personally. A Success Coach is a mentor who encourages, motivates, and connects students to campus-wide resources to reach their goals.

During the first session, the Success Coach will spend time talking with students about their goals. This will give both the student and the Success Coach an idea of what areas or subject matter students are doing well in and what skills students may want to develop a little more. This will give the students and the Success Coach the opportunity to create a plan full of helpful resources, tips, and goals.
