What is the Life During College program?
The Life During College program was developed to not only enhance your current college success programming, but to also support you…the faculty, staff, and administrators that are dedicated to ensuring the academic success of the students you serve.
Our team of authors and reviewers are your peers – educators that are actively engaged in developing college success programming on their own campuses. We understand that no two campuses or students are the same. That is why we offer a diversity of products that are focused on specific audiences. Currently we offer services for traditional, community college, student veterans, and online learners.
Our clients DO NOT want a program planned around a text. Instead, they are seeking to create a college success program that includes core fundamentals, inon-cognitive skill development, as well as diversity in programming. They want a program that is customizable to their specific needs. And they want a program that works within their limited budget and/or they don’t want their students spending a lot of money on a book. We offer our clients all the above and much more.

In addition, it can be used as a promotional tool to engage high schools and college prep programs. These courses can also be used as the text for your class – allowing students to access the information for free.
