College Success Strategies (G S 104)
College Success Strategies is a course designed to help first-year students transition into college. Students learn to navigate conversations with professors, academic professionalism, to identify and navigate barriers to success, and to find their place in the University of Lynchburg community.
There is an emphasis on individual strengths, goals, and self awareness. Ultimately, students will begin to develop an individual development plan to help them set goals and return to the values that define them. The work in this course helps students understand their abilities in leadership; innovating and working collaboratively; and recognizing and supporting diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Peer Academic Coaching (PAC)
Peer Academic Coaching (PAC) is a service that provides help to students on an individual basis. This help can include developing better organizational skills, such as organizing course materials and studying habits, time management, priorities, and steps for completing a selected task.
This service can help students who are struggling with academics get back on track and motivated to continue working hard.
Peer Assisted Supplemental Study (PASS)
Peer Assisted Supplemental Study (PASS) helps students in traditionally difficult classes.
In Fall 2022, more than 90% of Lynchburg students surveyed said PASS helped them improve their class grades. PASS is a widely used resource with more than 6,000 visits logged in the 2022-23 academic year.
