Student Newsletter and Reminders
Spring Break has been extended by one week - All classes are to be delivered via Blackboard starting March 23
We have been using technology for the purposes of counselor training - for some time now. The transition to fully online delivery is not a huge stretch for us. The extension of Spring Break allows time for other Programs on campus to make some adjustments. Please continue working on your classwork - hopefully with the same intensity and pace you exerted last week and the week before that.
So many things around us are changing and evolving on a daily basis. We are all experiencing new and unprecedented events. As aspiring counselors, remind yourself what you have control over and what you do not. Focus on what is in front of you now. Strive to remain calm, flexible, and exercise good self-care. The semester continues.
If you are currently in Practicum or Internship, please review this message.
