Resiliency Week 2021

Academic Achievement Center Success Ambassadors launched a Student Success Campaign called Resiliency Week! This campaign was all about highlighting the determination, creativity, and resiliency of K-Staters 

We hope these student stories can bring motivation and energy to keep pushing through! Don’t forget to follow @kstatesuccess on Instagram to stay up to date on all Student Success resources.  

Lauren Golec

Lauren is proud to be a K-State student and has loved using the resources available to her despite the stigma that may be associated with it. “A lot of students don't talk about tutoring because in high school it was looked down on to need a tutor. In college, if you want to succeed, you may need help from tutoring.”  She has always been a resilient and determined student.
