Quotes from Previous Students

“[My PSC] has helped me stay on top of my homework and assignments. General advice about IC courses and services offered on campus. Frequent check-ins helped."

“The PSC has been helpful in making me more confident about myself in regards to Ithaca College and educated about how the college works.”

“They've helped me with prioritizing, planning, and organization when it comes to time management and getting things done. We've even created an online list table where we put in the assignments, their course, and when it is due by, which I believe will help me a lot even outside of school. We've also recently put in another column for how long we think that it will take. Also, breaking things down into steps and smaller tasks. Besides just helping me do those things when we meet, I feel like I've improved my skills when it comes to those tasks. Also, she has helped me talk to professors and ask them questions about assignments.”

“My PSC kept me accountable! She helped me set short term, long term and weekly goals and then followed up and made sure I was staying on track! She also gave me a lot of great advice.”
