Your path to success as a Cougar              

Why do I need to see a counselor for student-athletes?

  • To assist student-athletes in the identification of educational, career and personal goals.
  • To empower student-athletes to reach academic, career and personal success.
  • To increase retention, graduation and transfer rate of student-athletes.
  • To encourage each student-athlete to develop independence, self-advocacy and to mature mentally emotionally, physically and athletically.
  • To create an environment within the intercollegiate athletic program that promotes academic achievement.
  • To maximize the academic potential of student-athletes by providing an atmosphere that enhances learning skills, career development, and personal development.

We also encourage our student-athletes to keep their priorities in order. Academics always come first. Athletics is secondary, followed by their social lives. Maintaining a positive image is also key to a successful Athletic Department. We teach our student-athletes never to do anything that would embarrass their team, themselves, their parents or their school.

We teach our athletes to be winners on and off the court or playing field. Our student-athletes know that their main goal is to prepare to succeed in life, college, and athletics. Striving to maintain a positive image and prioritizing life choices will help to create both an outstanding athlete and a well-rounded individual.
