What Counselors Do Six

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

Advocate (Ray) – Someone who’s on your side. This can take the form of a letter of recommendation for a scholarship, application to a university, or explaining to the VP of Student Services why a petition for re-admission from disqualification is justified.

Hedy Lamarr of "The Conspirators"
Conspirator (Ray) – Your parents want you to become a doctor, and you can’t stand the sight of blood. Let’s conspire to find something that’s a better fit.
