Work With A Personal Life Coach  

Maryville University is invested in the success of every student, both while at university and after graduation. Maryville understands that the college experience can be a little daunting at times, especially for international students, so that’s why they provide professional advisers. Each first-year student works closely with a life coach who is their guide and mentor. Each student will receive personal guidance for important academic and career decisions, and are also helped with their transition into the Maryville community. The life coaches serve as a student’s confidante when questions develop and are a source of support when concerns arise. Of course, the coaches will also be eager to celebrate their student’s successes.
