WHY USF?

I chose USF due to the social justice focus, cohort model, and the location. I hope to work and serve in the Bay Area and USF is the perfect place to gain experience. Now that I am in the program, I am so incredibly thankful for the professors and SCP staff that support us along the way. I have never felt so much support from a school or program before.

WHAT HAS BEEN THE HIGHLIGHT OF YOUR PROGRAM THUS FAR?

The cohort model and class discussions with professors has been the highlight of the school counseling program for me. We heave learned so much from each other, while also supporting and encouraging each other. The professors and SCP staff are incredibly supportive.

WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS?

The advice I have for prospective students is to find a program in which the mission resonates with you, this will be reflected within the program. Also, learn and experience as much as you can in your program and establish healthy self-care activities for yourself.

Why USF?

I picked USF because of the strong focus on social justice and systematic change. I wanted to be part of a program that would give me the tools to become a change agent both within a school setting and in the greater community.

What has been the highlight of your program so far?

The biggest highlight for me has been the strong sense of community among my peers and professors. Being taught by diverse professors in a small class size has undoubtably been the most conducive to my education.

What advice do you have for prospective students?

If you have the opportunity to attend an open house event, go! There is nothing like stepping foot on campus, taking a look for yourself, and feeling like home.
