Meet Founder & College Success Expert Katy Oliveira


Hi! I’m Katy.

You might know me from the Collegehood Advice podcast.

After struggling through my own college experience, I’ve spent the last 15 years helping students from around the world use their college experience to create a life that aligns with them.

College is a magical time in our lives, but it can also be overwhelming, stressful and plain old challenging. I believe anyone attending college has the power to create an amazing and rewarding experience. So I created this membership as a space to help you do just that.



Not Sure if the Fantastic First Year Club is Right for You?

The Fantastic First Year Club is NOT for everyone, so here is a little info to help you figure out if it’s right for you BEFORE you invest your time and money.

Who It’s For

✅ Community College or University Freshman looking to start their college experience off strong.

✅Current college students who want a fresh start and need help improving their grades, getting organized, or identifying their major.

✅Rising college students…a.k.a. graduating high school seniors or recent high school grads about to leave for college.

✅People interested in their own personal development and growth.

✅Anyone interested in getting the most value from their investment in college, not just settling for okay.

✅Action takers who aren’t just going to lurk in the membership and never implement new strategies or do the work.

Who It’s NOT For

❌Experienced college students with strong organization, great grades, and a clear major.

❌Anyone looking for a quick fix, hacks, and are not willing to dedicate the time it takes to do good work.

❌Someone who doesn’t believe it’s possible to grow, change, and develop yourself.

❌People who are looking for a licensed therapist or a specialized coach for students with psychological conditions or learning differences.

❌People who want someone to do the work for them. This is a space to learn strategies and access tools that YOU can implement into your daily life.

❌People expecting guaranteed results. I know what I teach works, but I can’t guarantee specific results from following my advice. No one can make that promise.
