Welcome to the Student Success Center!
The Student Success Center (Room 3) celebrates and fosters critical literacy and thinking skills through in-person and online tutoring, professional development workshops, classroom presentations, and faculty support. Our mission is to ensure the academic and professional success of our students through collaborative feedback that empowers students to communicate with confidence.
Working on a draft of a particularly challenging research paper? Struggling to articulate an answer to an interview question? Feeling lost in the search for peer-reviewed source material? The Student Success Center at WCU in Philadelphia can help!
What you can expect at the success center:
We encourage you to make use of the success center as an antidote to procrastination and a source of accountability. Think of our support as a resource for generating, revising, and receiving feedback on your work, whether that work is for the classroom or your professional development, but be careful not to treat the success center as a last-minute fix-it shop, which reinforces bad study habits or may create co-dependency.

Prior to enrolling in the social work program, she worked as an Expanded Functions Dental Assistant. Antoinette lives in Philadelphia and enjoys playing guitar, watching documentaries and cuddling with her very spoiled Siberian Husky.
