MA in School Counseling
Featured Alumni Testimonial
Raleigh Booze, MA School Counseling
“The professors cared for us tremendously. They held us to high standards, but were also interested in our success. From taking our first classes to completing our internships, they made sure that we had the tools we needed in order to succeed. They didn’t just care because it was a part of their job description; they reached out to us because they saw our potential, encouraged us and knew how to help us get to where we needed to go.”
