College Counselors

College is confusing... on many levels.  It's a bit overwhelming just applying, choosing a major, choosing a school and then choosing classes... And I'm just speaking from a parents point of view.  I can't imagine how it must be for the student.  So today, I'm thankful for trained professionals who are available for us to explain and clear up some of the confusion. Today, Sierra went to a counselor at Chico and they made the decision that she would add a 2nd major (Hospital Administration) along with her already stated major of Pre-Nursing.  Then... they sat down and figured out the schedule that she will follow to get her to graduation in the Spring of 2011.  Way cool.  This way, she can graduate with a degree from Chico even if that isn't where she attends nursing school.  What a relief to have a plan to meet the goal.  All it took was one meeting with the counselor to figure out the plan.
