Mustang Success Center

Building 52, Room D37 (805) 756-6211

I found it quite easy to discuss my issues and find a solution and explanation to it. It was a wonderful experience and I honestly love popping into Mustang Success Zoom Calls, despite the long wait, because I know I will be finding solutions quickly and I will be approached

It was a great meeting and my advisor showed great respect for my needs to succeed academically.

  —First Time Freshmen Fall 2020

I was quickly given a breakout room and the advisor I met with was my Scholar Mentor - a perfect coincidence. Not only did I get to talk with him 1:1, but I also received help for the issues I was having.
