What Counselors Do Seven

This is part seven of a series of roles that counselors play at City College.  Feel free to add to the list!  

Humorist (Ray) – Sometimes we need to step back and enjoy a good laugh. It may be the only thing that gets us through the day. Added benefit – we don’t take ourselves too seriously.

Interpreter (Kelli) – Academic Babble: the jargon that academics use to confuse everyone else into thinking they’re smarter than they actually are.  Sometimes we forget that you’re not steeped in the jargon, so I interpret and translate into plain English.  Occasionally, you’ll notice me frowning at the words on the page, trying to figure out what exactly the author actually meant when they wrote that.
