What do Compass Program students discuss with Student Success Coaches/Advisors and Peer Coaches?  Coaches/Advisors have information to share with students in every meeting but are also available to address any questions or concerns students might have. Meetings are tailored to individual student needs. Students typically meet with their Peer Coach every other week throughout their first year and at least twice a semester with their Student Success Coach/Advisor.
