Student Success provides the life skills necessary to be successful not only in college but also in all careers. It develops the “soft skills” that employers desire such as communication interpersonal skills and the ability to work well with others.

Choices of Successful Students

SUCCESSFUL STUDENTS…

  • …master SELF-MANAGEMENT, consistently planning and taking purposeful actions in pursuit of their goals and dreams.
  • …employ INTERDEPENDENCE, building mutually supportive relationships that help them achieve their goals and dreams (while helping others do the same).
  • …gain SELF-AWARENESS, consciously employing behaviors, beliefs, and attitudes that keep them on course.

STRUGGLING STUDENTS…

  • …have difficulty sustaining motivation, often feeling depressed, frustrated, and/or resentful about a lack of direction in their lives.
