Counselor’s fair answers student questions

Students received free pizza and college counseling advice during the first Counselors Fair hosted by the Student Advisory Board.

The fair took place in the Great Hall and was open to all Pierce students seeking advice on transferring to a university, completing their education, and on to how to move forward with their careers.

“Our number one goal as a department is letting students know we are here for them,”  said Joanna Zimring Towne, Career Services director.  “It’s so important for us to help students reach their educational goals.”

Although students can schedule a 30-minute appointment to meet with a counselor up to a week in advance through the Pierce Counseling Center online, time slots do fill up quickly. Because of the limited time available, some students like Mayara Fernandez utilized the fair as a way to get her questions answered.

“I tried to schedule an appointment online but there wasn’t a slot open so I thought this was a good opportunity,” said Fernandez, who is completing her last year at Pierce.
