Character Quest

Success Coaching

As you begin your first year at Carthage, you are going to have questions. While there are many resources on campus to support you, sometimes you just want advice from someone who has been there. That’s where your Success Coach can help.

Every first-year Carthage student is paired with a Success Coach, a Carthage sophomore, junior, or senior who has been trained through the Character Quest program. Your Success Coach can help you:

  • Get involved in campus activities.
  • Join a student organization.
  • Make the most of campus resources and services, such as the Writing Center, Center for Student Success, and Career Services.
  • Connect with Carthage faculty, staff, and other students.
  • And much more.

Coaches also act as thought-partners, helping freshmen explore big questions about life, leadership, and the college experience; and as peer advisors, passing on lessons from their own Carthage experiences.

If you have questions about success coaching at Carthage, contact the Center for Student Success, 262-551-5800.
