The Student Success Center was created to help maximize students’ success in all areas of their daily life at M.U.M.  We offer academic support, academic and career advising, internship assistance, peer mentoring, and a variety of workshops.

The Student Success Center provides assistance for students who need an extra boost in their study and writing skills so they can take full advantage of the University’s unique educational experience.

We use the traditional approaches to study skills and writing. These include lessons on goal setting and time management, active listening and note taking, efficient study, reading, preparing for and taking exams, and research and writing support.
