“We’re friendly. We’re fun. CAS is a cool place to be,” says Assistant Director of the Center for Academic Success (CAS) Nicole Fiorucci.
The CAS is available to provide students with the academic assistance needed to achieve their goals. These services are offered at no additional cost. The center has professional tutors, as well as peer educators. Students are encouraged to ask questions, seek out additional information and challenge themselves academically.
Fiorucci began her journey at Post University as an undergraduate student, studying psychology on main campus. Graduating with her bachelor’s degree in 2015, Fiorucci not only decided to pursue her master’s degree in education through Post’s online program, but she also simultaneously began working as an ADP admissions counselor.
“I started my journey at Post on main campus, and it feels good to be able to give back, supporting students as they go through their own educational journeys,” said Fiorucci.
After three years working as an admissions counselor, Fiorucci worked as an academic success counselor beginning from 2018-July 2021, when the opportunity to apply for the assistant director position was presented. Within the role, a primary goal of hers is to create more proximity between the academic success counseling team and the center. With that clear understanding of the role in which each team undergoes to support students, a stronger team dynamic is enabled, bridging any gaps that may exist.
Fiorucci encourages students to “Let the CAS team know what you need, and we will find the best method to help you out. We are open to feedback to improve the way our students want to see the Center.”
Main campus students are encouraged to stop in any time. Online students can make an appointment through Blackboard under Student Services.
