What Students are saying about Success Coaching

“My coach listened to all my problems and even broke them down farther then I personally did, to give me a better understanding of what I need to do better and in what exact area. The strategies she gave me helped me better break down my day to day schedule to find areas to be more productive and to better schedule out my day. Instead of procrastinating.”

“When I shared my struggle with time management, the success coach recommended I use google calendar and link all other calendars such as canvas calendars. It was really helpful.
I think success coaches are absolutely helpful and awesome.”
