West Windsor, N.J. – The turnout was great and the reaction solidly positive for a “Goal-Setting and Time Management Workshop” hosted by Mercer County Community College’s (MCCC’s) student success coaches in March. Coaches Jennifer Smith, Jehan Mohamed and Tom Kane led a dynamic 60-minute session and, based on student feedback, believe their message was received in the spirit it was intended: to help MCCC students achieve their goals.
Starting off the discussion was student Gabriel Matt, who travels around campus with his service dog, Louie, by his side. Matt recalled his own struggles with goal-setting and time management when he first started college, but reassured the assembled students that academic success is possible with the right strategies and tools in hand.
According to Success Coach Smith, Matt’s sharing of his own challenges set the tone for a meaningful session, with the coaches leading engaging hands-on activities and sharing practical tools.
