Welcome

Welcome to the University Success Center!

Image of Success Center LobbyYou can find us on the second floor of The Commons. Our mission is to help you, our student, develop the personal and academic knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary for university success. What does this mean?

It means that:

  • You have support while making the transition into college life through our First-Year Experience Program.
  • You have connections with a variety of campus resources, both academic and non-academic, that will help you meet the challenges that can come with college life.
  • You have ongoing and easily-accessible academic support (tutoring, consultations, workshops) throughout your entire UNA career.
One of the many resources available through the University Success Center is access to the open computer lab in room 227. This lab will be available  for all UNA students on Mondays to Thursdays from 6-8 p.m. and on Sundays from 2-4 p.m.  NO food or drinks are allowed in the lab.
