Student Support

"Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others."

Philippians 2:4 (ESV)

 

Student Support

Attending college is an important step in one's life. Higher education offers students a variety of valuable experiences. Even though the experiences gained outside of the classroom are of considerable value, the central value of a college experience continues to be found in the classroom.

Students who manage their study time effectively, attend class regularly, get involved in class discussions, and take good notes typically do well academically. However, not all students find the transition to higher education an easy one.

At Corban, one of the first places that students who are struggling with class work seek assistance is the Student Support Office. The Student Support staff is dedicated to helping support students to succeed in college whether it be academic study skills, connection to peer tutors, or advising.
