What We Do

We are here to help you succeed! LSSU created the Laker Success program to provide academic support inside the residence halls. Our Resident Success Coaches are upper-class students who take an active roll in passing on the skill and techniques that they have developed to students living on campus.

Many studies show that students who live in University housing complete more credit hours and have higher GPAs. Access to the library and other academic buildings is more convenient for students living on campus. For these reasons, we encourage students to live in University housing. Eating healthy, exercising, getting enough sleep, as well as scheduling study and coursework times are all a part of planning for a successful semester.
