College was a big change. It wasn’t the amount of work or the difficulty level, but I have never created a full semester schedule before. Looking at the entire semester at once was overwhelming. My CORE coach modeled how to develop a long-term planning schedule and how to then concentrate on one week and one day at a time. Following the schedule has given me confidence in my college work.
CORE has helped me understand what college is really like. Dr. Link has helped me to become more independent by helping me create a weekly schedule. I am now more confident in setting meetings with my professors and communicating better.
CORE has helped tremendously in helping with organizing my work. The biggest support has been having direct contact with Dr. Link. As my CORE coach, she has helped my communication with the college while making decisions during registration.
