Success Coaches are still available over the Semester Break!
Students can continue to reach out to their Success Coach over the semester break. Please note the university will be closed beginning at the end of the day on December 18th and will reopen on January 4th, and coaches will be unavailable during that time.
Please feel free to email or call your coach if questions come up before you return for Spring Semester. Keep checking your e-mail regularly and coaches will begin outreaching to you right before the start of spring term!
Success coaching in Spring 2021
Success Coaches are available for Zoom and Phone appointments throughout the spring semester. You can schedule an appointment online. You can email your coach with questions, too! Coaches will outreach to their students throughout the semester to schedule appointments through campaigns, but students are always welcome to email or call if they need help!
There will be no in-person drop-in appointments this fall in accordance with our health and safety measures on campus. We do have a live-chat feature available to ask questions - scroll down to the bottom of this page! Your coach will outreach with other ways to connect.
Please connect with us on Instagram as well @xustudentsuccess.
The most recent campus updates can be found on the Return to Campus website.
What is success coaching?
Success Coaching is the process of supporting Musketeers. We can lend a hand during every step of your college experience, while you develop the potential within yourself to succeed.
True to our Jesuit-inspired approach of caring for the whole person-body, mind and spirit-our proactive approach to success coaching provides holistic support and builds meaningful relationships between students and university faculty and staff.
It's a relationship that begins before you arrive. That means we'll reach out to you! Every first-year Musketeer receives a letter about their Success Team and how coaches are at the ready to lend support from day one!
How is Success coaching relevant?
Students come to college with varying degrees of self-efficacy and problem-solving skills. Coaching provides the tools to help them prepare for college life, life after graduation and a professional career. Coaching encourages students to understand strengths and weaknesses, recognize patterns of behavior, reflect critically on decisions, and make deliberate choices that support their best interest.
What can Success Coaching do for me?
Feel free to call or email your success coach with any questions or concerns. They will be happy to hear from you! Attending college is all about challenges and changes. Through coaching, students develop self-sufficiency and academic confidence, while facing issues like home-sickness and "not fitting in." Your coach can provide you with information to keep your college career on track.
