Roane State: a place to succeed

Student with Success Coach

“I was really nervous about the college admissions, financial aid, and class registration process. However, my Success Coach, Sue Niemi, made all those processes very easy and accessible. Working with my Success Coach created feelings of comfort, inclusion, and belonging, which overall guided my college career in a positive direction!”
