Ali Aust

Academic Coach


What do you enjoy most about working with UT undergrads?

Students at UT really want to do well, which makes my job easy! I love watching students grow and excel over time and knowing I have even a small part in their journey at UT. 

What is the most important advice you would give to new students?

The transition from high school to college is tough! Give yourself some time to adjust and take advantage of the wonderful resources available to you. There are so many people on campus that can help and we are here for you!

What is your favorite place on campus?

There are lots of spots on campus that I enjoy but I’d have to say the front lawn of Ayers is one of my favorites. I spent a lot of time in Ayers during my graduate program and fell in love with it!

Why should students take advantage of the ASC?

The Academic Success Center is here for you. We offer 1:1 tutoring for over 250 classes, Supplemental Instruction, and Academic Coaching. During Academic Coaching appointments we can talk about time management, effective study skills, and so much more. We are here to help you succeed!
