Academic Consulting & Engagement Supports (ACES) Program

  • Do you have issues with organization and time management?
  • Do you find it hard to get your assignments completed on-time?
  • Are you worried about making friends or eating in the dining hall?
  • Are you concerned with being successful at college?

If you answered yes to any of the questions listed, Academic Consulting & Engagement  may be a program you should consider.  Each student in this semester-long program is assigned a coach who will assist in building self-confidence, motivation, and self-reliance through the creation of individualized study and life strategies that are adapted to each student's need and style.

In addition to one hour of one-on-one coaching per week, this program provides supplemental workshops on topics to strengthen skills in organization, confidence and independence.  For students who may need more social support, groups are organized to attend activities on campus and eating together in the dining halls.  Finally, students will also be encouraged to join student organizations and participate in other student leadership activities on-campus.   The goal of ACES is to guide each student through a positive and productive transition to college.
