Student Testimonials

"The USF School Counseling Program has changed me in ways I cannot even begin to describe. The program prepares their students to what is actually facing youth in urban schools in today's times and how we, as professional school counselors, can be agents of change to make a positive impact on the students in our charge."

Chris Chu

"My time at USF and with the School Counseling program is an experience
I will never forget."

"My friend works for a company called Meraki. It is pronounced May-rah-kee. This is greek and it stands for:
Do something with soul, creativity, or love. It's when you put something of yourself into what you're doing.

"I feel like this describes what the program does to you, why we are all here and being an agent of change. Being an agent of change is doing something you love, with creativity and soul."

LyRyan Russell

"Throughout the two-year program at USF, I have had tremendous personal growth and have gained insight into the person I am and the person I want to be as a school counselor.

"When asked if I feel 'ready' to enter the field of school counseling, I always reflect on how the USF School Counseling Program has prepared me to work with the universal issues faced by adolescents as well as those specifically related to underserved youth in urban schools."

Andrea Davis

"I have also really appreciated the connections and relationships that are built between professors and students, both inside and outside of the classroom."
