That’s right, Student America. A new day is dawning and we’re excited to have you as a part of it. The Student Improvement Movement isn’t just a play on words. It’s real. We are bringing real world approaches directly to you, and our mission is to help you smash the struggle.
In the coming weeks and months we’re going to be exploring a lot of different topics ranging from career discovery (fun fact: in future we will try to avoid the word ‘career’) to the habits that make students and post graduates like you successful today.
We’re tired of watching students today struggle. College is supposed to be fun. It’s designed as a stepping stone to the next chapter of your life, a leg up into the workforce. But for many, college has increasingly become a place of stress and anxiety, often before you even arrive on campus for the first time.
Stress over whether or not you’ll get a good job when you graduate. Where that first internship will come from. Anxiety over not knowing what the future holds or how you’ll even get there. And overwhelm with too many things happening and once and no clear vision or purpose ahead of you.
Too many students are taking longer and longer to graduate. They pick their majors with little basis for their choice, and as a result many are going into needless debt. Too many aren’t happy with what they’re doing, and are pessimistic about their future. Most don’t even know where to begin to change that. We open up on all these topics and more, and solve that for you.
We here at Student Success U can relate.
Not so long ago we were in the exact same boat. And it’s getting a little crowded in here. We too felt lost. We too had no idea where we were going. That’s when we had an idea. We started meeting with other post graduates and current students, and began to buld something progress-driven, complementary to college, and which students could use immediately to get ahead, prepared, and connected to the world outside their campus.
That’s why we’d like to welcome you and your closest peers to share in our stories. We want to show you those times we made the right calls (and how you can replicate them yourself), as well as the little-known pitfalls we stumbled blindly into. You’ll see where we took chances, where we succeeded, and what we learned from our mistakes. Throughout, the power of connecting with people is a theme we’ll touch on again and again.
And we’re not stopping there. We’re going to bring experts right to your phone or laptop. Every week we’re going to be delving into their stories, bringing you their tips for success. We’ll be also be interviewing those same thought leaders from various industries and sharing their insight. While we’re at it, we’ll also be creating young thought leaders in schools and on campuses. Who knows? Maybe even you.
We want you to be successful. That’s our mission, our passion, and our commitment. It’s time things changed. Here at Student Success U, we’re the compliment to your school, providing the things college doesn’t teach. We hope you’re as excited to join us in our mission as we are to have you. If any of this sounds appealing to you, then it’s time to become a part of the Student Improvement Movement sweeping college campuses.
