Success Coaching

The Office of Student Enrichment fosters the development of students’ academic and personal goals through personalized success coaching. Success coaching is an individualized meeting with a trained professional who wants to help students reach their goals. Conversations with a Success Coach will focus on learning strategies, life management and goal attainment. A meeting with a Success Coach is the best way for a student to personalize their education and stay on track to graduation. It provides them the opportunity to talk about their own experience at Limestone, in and out of the classroom, and what resources they need to achieve their goals.

We recommend a minimum of three meetings per semester with a Success Coach:

  • First of the semester to review the student’s course load and devise strategies to attack their work.
  • Mid-semester after they’ve settled into classes and are aware of assignment dates.
  • End of the semester to sharpen their focus on their remaining work.
     

Students can schedule additional meetings with their Success Coach anytime, especially when they:

  • feel they’re “not doing well”
  • have questions about a Limestone policy
  • feel undue academic or personal pressure
  • want to explore academic options of any kind
  • want to sharpen learning or life management skills
