Opening the conversation.
One future college graduate at a time.
"JoBeth is absolutely amazing to work with. She has a brilliant ability to hear what is being said (and not being said) which has helped me achieve my goals. Her unwavering support of my vision is inspiring and so appreciated. She sees in me what I cannot always see in myself. I highly recommend worthing with JoBeth in any capacity for her professionalism and willingness to be part of the solution is second to none."

Do Your Part in Increasing Student Retention
What are the things we can do to help students get to and stay in college?
Do you find yourself or colleagues saying,
- "The class is not that hard. I don't know what the struggle is."
- "We have a great school, but our graduation rates aren't increasing”
- "Our students seem to lack the motivation to finish what they start."
Students fail and drop out every single day because they are not able to deal with the life that is happening outside of the academics.
According to the ADDA, 85% of college students report feeling overwhelmed by things they had to do.
When we stand before a group of students we must see them beyond a scholar. We have to see the working mother, the student who is working 2 jobs just to keep their head above water, the student who has always been the "smart kid" but is struggling for the first time, the student who loves their social life but still wants a degree...
We have to see it all.
