Hello and welcome!
My name is Hannah Williams-McNamee, and I’m a Success Coach for the Shepherd Success Academy. I’m excited to tell you more about our program!
The Shepherd Success Academy (SSA) is a unique opportunity geared to help First Year students with their transition from high school to college. During this semester-long program students will receive additional support through their first year.
Participating in SSA offers the following benefits:
- Weekly meetings with a personal success coach who will work with you throughout your first semester at Shepherd and serve as your guide to campus resources
- Creating a personalized success plan with your coach developed to help them maintain good grades and positive relationships on campus
- A great opportunity to interact with new classmates
- Receive priority class registration, and one graded credit, contingent upon participation in the SSA FYEX course
Welcome to Shepherd University! We look forward to working with you. I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions about our program.
We are located in the Student Center, Suite 216 and are open from 8:00a.m. to 4:30p.m. Monday through Friday. We can be reached at 304-876-5453.
