Our Mission


What We Do

Life Degree Society is an academic consulting service driven towards improving the student experience for young people all over the world. After years of research and informational interviews with students and their parents, we have created a service that supports and inspires students to take control of their lives.

 

Student life, from middle school all the way through a college, is murky, and its struggles are undefined. We don’t pretend to know everything. Instead, Life Degree’s mission is to consult with students, formal ones and students of the hard knocks of life, using a well-rounded approach to their academic career.

How We Do It

Our service empowers students with unique insights from successful recent college grads. The interactive program includes webinars, tutorials, workshops, exercises, blogs, and one-on-one consulting for students eager to expand their academic experience.  

We have identified four areas of life that are the most crucial to student success; Relations, Income, Self, and Efficiency. With these 4 areas we #RISE to the challenge of a Life Degree.

 

 

Relations

​​​​Relations are More

So, what about Relations? At Life Degree, we know that relationship issues go far beyond choosing a relationship status on Facebook. In addition to boyfriends and girlfriends there are bosses, future bosses, professors and teachers, coworkers, friends, family, mentors, enemies, frenemies, dogs, cats, the pizza delivery guy….everyday is full of interactions, and we’re here to help you figure them out.

Income

​​Income is More

When we talk about Income, we’re talking about more than filling out the FAFSA and learning how to budget. We’re talking about developing life-long skills that will sustain you throughout your academic career and beyond, including saving, budgeting, understanding loans, shopping like a pro, renting textbooks, and cooking dope meals on $5 a day. When you graduate Life Degree Finance you’ll be so capable that people on the street will be asking you to do their taxes. Not really, but you get the idea.

Self

​​Self is More

We also help you navigate internal and external matters of the Self. Self is our way of summing up your mental and physical well-being (internal) combined with the image you present to the outside world (external). Studenthood is one of the most trying times in your life. We understand that the Freshman 15 is NOT a myth, and that creating a legit-looking LinkedIn is a pain in the ass. Stick with us.

Efficiency

​​Efficiency is More

Finally, we help you handle the stress of academia by focusing on Efficiency. To us, it’s not just about avoiding all-nighters and writing to-do lists (though we can help with that too!). Efficiency is about learning how to transition into adulthood where demands from school, work, and your social sphere increase exponentially. You can’t change the hours in a day, but you can change your behavior to reclaim some of those hours.

 

 

To tackle these challenges we've developed personalizable courses geared towards the "teaching a person how to fish" mentality. Head over to our courses to see which are being offered now.

 

Why We Do It

The student lifestyle demands more from young people, creating new challenges in their  Relations, Income, Self, and Efficiency. Life Degree Society targets students’ personal, social, and professional needs and provides them with the skills necessary to navigate their way to a fulfilling life.  


Our program aims to lower unemployment and underemployment rates of young people, increase retention rates, minimize student debt, and close the gaps that are so detrimental to students and young professionals. We believe in fueling social progress by helping one student at a time.

Workforce 101 has helped me to stop and think about how to organize parts of my life that I assumed would just fall into place on their own. It has caused me to take more initiative in my personal growth and has helped me develop my professional skills, teaching me that I have more ways to market myself for success than I initially realized. The skills I learned in Workforce 101 will continue to aid me in my professional development for years to come.
