Coaches & Mentors

A program to help you succeed in College

Starting college can be an overwhelming experience. Students often have many questions and face many challenges.

  • How do I decide which classes are best for me?
  • What do I need to study to prepare for the job I want?
  • What do I do if I have academic trouble?
  • How do I best prepare for the job market?

Now that you have made the decision to attend college, you need to take every step and use every resource to ensure your success.

The Coaches & Mentors Program will help you prepare for your future and provide you with all of the support you need to get you through the challenges of college coursework.

A central goal of the program is to help you establish a personal connection with the college through proactive advising.

The Coaches & Mentors staff genuinely cares about students and you'll sense that there is a support network in place to help you achieve your goals.
