Success Stories and Comments

It was a pleasure meeting you. It means so much to know that others are concerned about students' welfare, academically and otherwise at NSU. As you suggested, I've met with a tutor three times last week and I have another appointment today. I am happy to report that I'm feeling more confident and looking forward to future classes. I will certainly spread the word about your services to other students.

My experience with a student academic success coach was great, she was very helpful by answering all my questions and also very approachable. She also provided me with great advice about classes, and promptly gave me the booklet of NSU scholarships. I look forward to seeing her next semester and I will keep in touch with her if I have any questions regarding student success.

I really liked my coach. She had a very caring and down-to-earth presence. I really saw her great concern and dedication for this program when she took the time to fill out my weekly scheduler. And she showed me how to balance my prior engagements and school work.

My two meetings with my academic success coach were really good experiences. She answered almost every question I had and I am always at ease talking to her about school life. Another thing I really appreciated was her helping me with getting in touch with the women's soccer coach for NSU.

My academic success coach was very nice and helpful. She answered all of the questions I had for her. She also gave me helpful tips for the future.
