UW-Green Bay: Academic Success Coaching video:
Transcript: I thought like reaching out was like you should be the last resort. That reaching out was just like a failure on my part and that I wasn’t good enough but we just can’t do it on our on our own. It’s just natural to you know seek help from others. So, Academic Success Coaching has really helped me out. I was procrastinating constantly on my assignments and then and so they really helped me like space out my study periods and get me on track. My grades improved a lot and with like better time management, I was able to spend less time worrying and doing my assignments and that sort of thing and more time with my friends and family. There’s a sort of like like negative like sort of stigma like around just like asking for help and it really shouldn’t be that way. I think that you know I’ve become a better person because of them and you know it it’s it’s not it’s not you know you shouldn’t be ashamed. It’s not something to be ashamed of. It’s it’s something to you know to be proud of you know. First year that I was at UW-Green Bay Manitowoc campus, it was 2020 everything turned online and I basically dropped out. It was very very hard for me. Second year, thought I was ready for it, I wasn’t prioritized work over my education. So, then when I wanted to come back again, they told me you got to do Academic Success Coaching. And for me that helped me a whole bunch because I was afraid to ask questions, I was lazy, I didn’t want to do the work but with the coaching I ended up being able to ask questions and prioritize the work school work over my actual work. So, before Academic Success Coaching, I felt pretty much like a failure. I couldn’t do it, it was too much for me. I just wanted to work and just give up on school. With Academic Success Coaching it really helped me bring out parts of me that I didn’t know there was and I was able to feel more confident myself and get excited to do the work that I needed. I am so proud to be at UW-Green Bay Phoenix because there are so many resources to help you be successful in your academics.
