What is the Rattler Success Center?
At St. Mary’s University, our goal is for every Rattler to be fully equipped to achieve their academic and personal development potential. It is our mission to build skills that help our students graduate and pursue a meaningful career.
The Rattler Success Center partners with all students to ensure academic excellence and empowerment through proactive professional advising, life skills training and comprehensive academic programming.
As of the 2019-2020 academic year:
Rattler Success Center Services
Our academic support team believes a transformative education requires personal development, which includes experiential learning, study abroad opportunities and life skills development. With that in mind, the Center offers a range of programs to support every aspect of our students’ academic lives and keep them on course for success.
All freshmen and transfer students are assigned academic advisers who provide individualized support for students as they transition to St. Mary’s and offer guidance as they prepare a plan that leads to graduation.
Academic Peer Coaching
The Rattler Success Center recognizes that students are challenged by juggling college, work and life. Peer coaches can help navigate your way to success.
Our dedicated student tutors are passionate about their chosen field of study and are available to provide help to their fellow students, no matter the subject.
Students in all majors are expected to have a clear grasp of written communication. The Writing Center is here to assist on research papers, essays and all other writing needs.
