The role of the Student Academic Success Graduate Assistant (GA) is to facilitate
Honors students in achieving their academic goals. There are different kinds of barriers
that can obstruct academic goals, such as not knowing how to study effectively for
a course, or even things like lack of sleep or getting excessively nervous before
a test. The Student Academic Success GA can help you navigate these barriers so that
you can reach your academic goals!

was able to help Honors College students feel more at home and helped connect them
to the campus. Samantha is now starting her first year in USF’s Rehabilitation and
Mental Health Master’s program, with her goal of becoming a Marriage and Family Therapist.
