Believe it or not, there is more to being successful in college than choosing the classes that you will be taking each semester! Each person’s success can mean using different success strategies—so make connections, find resources, use your faculty advisor and our Success Coaching team to make your time here as meaningful as possible. By doing so, you will find those strategies that work best for you. Don’t wait until the last minute when you are super stressed to try and make changes, start early!
