resources and services:


Counseling & Academic Advising

As a first generation college student,


I would not have been able to make it
without Josephine, my mentor. She has
been a positive role model and success
coach for me, helped me navigate the
complex college system, opened my eyes to
various college experiences...
She is a person I am not afraid to ask
questions about issues related to my
academic, personal and professional
development. She was so kind and
knowledgeable about college resources
and services. With her support I was able
to stay in good academic
standing as well as persist to
graduation.
