First-Year Success (VIP2 Peer Coaching)
The transition from high school to college isn’t always an easy one for a first-year student. Adjusting to these changes can be difficult and stressful even for the most able student. ASU understands the types of challenges first-year students face and, as a committed partner to their academic and personal success, makes coaching available to help freshmen adjust to life as a college student.
Encourage your students to make an appointment with a coach today to get started on the road to success. As a faculty member, also feel free to make a referral for a student who you think might benefit from this personalized coaching by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 480-965-3289. For more information about VIP² Peer Coaching and to access many other useful academic resources to support your students please visit students.asu.edu/fys.
