What is a Peer Success Coach (PSC)?

A PSC is a consistent point-person who can offer guidance to students as they navigate life at Purdue. PSCs receive training on coaching their peers through many of the same challenges they have faced. They function as guides, listeners, and motivational partners, but not as tutors, instructors, parents, or academic advisors.

They are here to listen to your concerns, point you in the right direction, and help you set (and achieve) your own academic, social, and personal goals while at Purdue. Because they are peers, PSCs work as a neutral party to help students gain insight and ideas. PSCs can guide you through...

  • Studying for exams
  • Connecting with campus resources and academic advisors
  • Finding motivation
  • Getting involved in campus activities and organizations
  • Managing your time
  • Exploring career options
  • Applying for student employment
  • And more!
