COLL-R 200: Success in the College
"As a COLL-R 200 Instructor, I believe in sharing my own unique experience as an undergraduate with the students in my class. It is important for students to acknowledge that there are many different paths towards living a fulfilling life, and there is ample time to discover new possibilities when we continue to be engaged in our environment."
"Transferring to Indiana University I had a dream to play on the football team, but things didn’t go as planned and I was unable to play. I was torn and so was my academic focus along with my direction in life. My grades were suffering, and my advisor suggested I take Success in the College. I was skeptical at first, but my skepticism quickly changed. Each student had a peer coach assigned to them and we met once a week to discuss class and life. Through those meetings, class lectures, and great advice given by the instructor and guest speakers, I was able to make a leap forward in my academic life. The way I think about college changed after the course. I highly recommend it."
—Cole Reichard, former COLL-R 200 student
