Student and mentor studying by Freddie's Cafe

Student Success Studio

Housed in the F. M. Smith Library, the Student Success Studio is a hub for students to gather to work on computers and participate in study groups. The Studio provides academic counseling, study space, tutoring, a writing center, and peer mentors. It is home to Freddie’s Cafe, complete with food and drink options such as Aspretto coffee with flavored syrups, a variety of drink and snack items, and a limited grab-n-go menu of sandwiches and wraps. A destination focused on bringing students together with academic success in mind.

Our mission is to help students become successful, serious and self-aware individuals who graduate from Graceland and move on for advanced study and/or productive careers that help them live rewarding lives. The atmosphere in student services is a friendly, accepting and personal one where students feel welcomed and accepted for who they are. Each student is challenged and supported to grow as an individual.
