About the Peer Academic Coaches

Academic coaches are upperclassmen at Greenville University oftentimes majoring in psychology or social work. Regardless of their major, however, academic coaches show exemplary skills in many areas of academic achievement and are eager to help other students improve their skills in the broader areas of academics. Some areas coaches can assist students with include:

  • Time management
  • Goal setting
  • Organization
  • Establishing priorities
  • Motivation
  • Academic progress
  • Academic strategies/study tips
  • Student life
  • And much more!

Academic coaches can also assist incoming students with the transition from high school (or from a previous college) to Greenville University. With the help of a coach, new students can more easily navigate campus and meet other students, thus enhancing their college experience. Additionally, coaches can serve as accountability mentors for students.
