VIP² Freshmen Coaching

Through the First-Year Success Center VIP² Coaching, highly-qualified upper-division and graduate students team up with freshmen to offer free academic support, information, skill development and advocacy. These coaches have experienced the challenges and obstacles first-year students are facing and work closely with them to help form good study habits, solve problems, adjust to the demands of college life and more.

Your VIP² coach acts as a connector, a cheerleader and a catalyst.

Connector - Your coach will help you access university resources and get you in contact with the right person in the right department.

Cheerleader - Your coach will encourage and motivate you, as well as keep you accountable.

Catalyst - Your coach will help spur your success by helping you achieve meaningful and measurable goals.

Why VIP²

At ASU, every student is important. In fact, every single student is a VIP. And that is exactly how this program treats you. Your coach responds to your questions and concerns right away, checks in with you, motivates you, and acts as an official friend. "Squared" refers to you and your coach acting as partners, forming an exponentially powerful problem-solving team. Through the VIP² program, you will: 

  • Develop a one-on-one relationship with an upper-level ASU student.
  • Get assistance seeking out services and getting the information you need.
