Advising/Counseling is an academic function that tends to be very different from one campus to another. However these are done, the topics in the University Survival website might be supportive.
Consider the following advising/counseling roles. With each role there are listed topics that might be helpful to students (and possibly their advisor/counselors).
|Advising/Counseling Issues||Relevant Topics|
|Building on the College Experience||
|Financial Difficulties||See the entire section on Financing Your Education|
|Academic Difficulties||See the entire sections on|
Generally these topics work best when the student is guided by an advisor in the selection of the best topic. Once topics are selected for the student, the advisor and student can discuss the specific actions the student will take or the decision that needs to be made.
The topic content should be viewed as a starting point for the discussion. Hopefully the content will help students work through the dimensions of the issue they are facing. .
