Why ELC?

"This is such a good idea!  If I would've had a life coach like this to ask questions from the start of my college career about courses to take or anything college related, I probably wouldn't have wasted soooo much money, and time.  I had to learn the hard way, which was expensive." 
-- Ricky F. 

College student life coaching has been proven effective in various studies.  The most generalizable results include increased graduation rates, greater career-oriented focus, and the enhancement of basic business and professional skills.  Students that are engaged in a coaching relationship also benefit from a plethora of other personalized results that are particular to their own interests, motivations, and fields of study. 

Parents and students have sought out the best coaches and instructors for basketball, soccer, football, swimming, dance, music, and art since they were five-years-old.  So why would it be any different for the collegiate journey?  All athletes and musicians, from mediocre to great, seek out training and advice from coaches to improve their abilities and skills.  It's time you do the same for your college career.

The university environment and use of technology has changed dramatically in the last 10 years.  While parents may try their best to pass down advice to their children, such advice may not be as relevant as it once was.  That is why it's important to get advice and guidance from our professors/coaches who are currently engaged in the classroom, advising students, and connected to department chairs, college deans, and university provosts.
