“A coach is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you’ve forgotten the words.”
–EMU student

If you’ve ever thought “if I just had someone who really understood?” CoachLink may be just the answer. Do you ever feel like:

• you’re overwhelmed?
• you can’t concentrate?
• things are “not okay”?
• you’re just plain stuck?

A coach can help you get unstuck and move forward. To see if a coach is right for you, e-mail or call 4317. We’ll help you figure it out!


Maybe what you need is a guide, mentor and coach all in one.
You can do this. We can help.

Did you know about 25% of college students arrive on campus with existing problems like depression, anxiety, attention issues, bipolar disorder or general problems with their moods and concentration?

If that describes your life… you’re not alone. Those challenges or any other struggles you encounter shouldn’t prevent you from being successful at college.

CoachLink pairs undergraduate students looking for help with CoachLink Coaches who help you get rooted at EMU and make choices that are right for you as you adjust to life away from home. One hundred percent of CoachLink students at EMU say they are more successful in school and have a better sense of well-being because of the program.

And 100 percent of CoachLink students who have depression, anxiety, ADHD, etc. say having a coach made a difference in their experience at EMU. (You don’t need a certain diagnosis or to be in counseling to utilize CoachLink.)
