Strive for Success

Educator Vincent Tinto wrote, “No college student ever rises to low expectations.” Aspire to go beyond “just average.”

  • Use healthy strategies to cope with stress: exercise, eat well, sleep enough and enjoy the company of good friends and family.
  • Do not hesitate to ask for help with an assignment.
  • If a problem seems insurmountable, try to approach it form a different perspective.
The Mendenhall Achievement Center endeavors to provide essential support services that foster personal growth, well-being and academic success for all UST students.  Centrally located in Crooker Center, the Mendenhall Achievement Center houses a number of offices that work together to support and enhance the overall academic experience for students.
