Meet the Coaches

Meet the Coaches

Each student enrolled in the Roar 2 Success program is assigned to a Completion Coach. Your Coach is here to offer guidance, advocacy, and support, with a focus on navigating the Buffalo State campus. Students can schedule a 1:1 meeting with their Completion Coach in the Bengal Success Portal or attend our weekly Drop-In Hours (virtual every first Wed 10a-12p,in person every Wed 1p-3p). We suggest that students commit to meeting with a Coach at least once per month. If you are having difficulty, then we suggest meeting with your Coach bi-weekly.

What can a Completion Coach help with?

  • Organization and Time Management
  • Pre-Registration Support
  • Registration Tutorial
  • Resource Connection (on or off campus)
  • Goal Planning
  • Social Support Connection
  • Financial Aid/Hold Resolution Guidance
  • Conduct Hearing Preparation/Guidance
