This week I diverted my attention towards the counseling office and counselors in general. Since it is the beginning of the school year the counselors are being bombarded with students trying to switch their schedule around. I, myself, went up to counseling and asked one of the counselors for some college input and to sign up for one of the after school college courses they provide. There were not a lot of people signing up for that opportunity. Many students are still trying to make appointments at times when their assigned counselor is not busy.
I decided to think about what the counselors are currently going through. Mrs. Albrecht came to many different classes and gave us a presentation. She talked about different college issues and how we can get grants/student loans. The counselors have also been sending us text messages to remind us of the counseling events they are providing for us. We are able to get help for college admissions from them and we have a place to ask questions if we are ever confused about the transition to college.
