Student & Alumni Activities

We are excited to introduce our Counselor Education Alumni Network! Having started in 2023, our Alumni Network has two liaisons that work with our program and the Alumni Association. Part of the network is our leadership team who serve as the planning committee for events, fundraisers, networking, and mixers. They support the Counselor Education Scholarship and Program funds and provide an avenue for our alumni to stay in touch post-graduation. Connect with our Alumni Network!
