We are proud to launch our new Create Success Initiative: students’ comprehensive destination for resources and reminders to help them make their academic dreams into realities. It’s all based on data we crunched from our alumni about what made them most successful. We boiled down all their tips and experiences into one place with links to help current students get connected to academic resources, extracurricular activities, financial aid information, academic advisors and more. So, students: bookmark, pin, favorite and revisit often to create your own success.
