Hello! My name is Lori Greenawalt and I am Program Advisor of the Academic Success Center, Certified Learning Center Professional – Level 2 for the Academic Success Center. I have spent my entire career in education and I have a passion for working with students. I earned a Bachelor of Science in Education and a Master of Science in Education from Youngstown State University in 1997 and 2012, respectively.

As an academic coach, I work with students on time management, organization, goal setting and other study skills that will help them succeed in their college career. I enjoy working with all students and I especially love to see them succeed after they have challenged themselves and worked through a tough semester. I believe that every student learns differently and at a different pace, but ALL students can learn if they work hard and don’t give up!

I have worked with many students on campus over the years and I look forward to working with many more in the future. Please don’t hesitate to stop in and see me at the RASC in Kilcawley.
