A Note from Amanda McDonald

Director of Student Success

Welcome to Crown College! We are thrilled to have you join our community of learners. As a student at Crown College, you are embarking on a journey that will challenge and inspire you, and we are here to support you every step of the way.

As the Director of Student Success, I am dedicated to helping you achieve your academic, personal, and professional goals. Whether you need assistance with course planning, study skills, time management, or any other aspect of your educational journey, I am here to help.

We encourage you to take advantage of all that Crown College offers inside and outside the classroom. Whether you are interested in student leadership, athletics, or community events, there are countless opportunities to get involved and make the most of your college experience. 

Once again, welcome to Crown College. We are excited to have you as part of our community and look forward to supporting you on your journey to success.


Every student is assigned their own personal Academic Advisor. This advisor will assist students in creating a graduation degree plan and provide oversight throughout their time as a student. These advisors have expertise in their specific areas in connecting students to career advancement.

Writing Lab

The Writing Lab offers open hours for students who would like additional assistance with no appointment required.

The assistants working in the Writing Lab have been selected based upon their high academic performance, ability to work with others, and completion of courses in which they are providing assistance. The tutors regularly work with professors to provide students assistance with the most recent materials and information being covered in class.

Study Spaces

Having a place to study is important for every student. Whether you prefer a quiet setting or a busy one, there are several areas to study around campus. The library, collaboration center, student center, residence halls, courtyard, and Sherburne Avenue coffee shop all serve to provide students a setting to study.

Disability Services

Crown College seeks to provide a positive educational experience for all of our students. We strive to assist and encourage students to achieve their fullest potential. In compliance with the American with Disabilities Act (ADA), Crown College does not discriminate against students with disabilities. Every effort is made to arrange effective and reasonable accommodations for qualified students. Students who would like to receive accommodation must provide appropriate and up-to-date documentation from a qualified professional.

Since each individual may have varied and specific needs, based upon their own unique disability, it is recommended that students meet with the Director of Disability Services, Dr. Tom McCracken upon arrival at our campus. Simply email Dr. McCracken at
