What does a counselor do? How is a counselor different from an advisor?
A counselor can help you with personal, academic and career concerns. An advisor has
information about courses, testing, registration, majors, and other academic issues.

The Counseling Office in Room 124 offers free, confidential counseling help for all
students at Town Plaza Center.
