Each professor is able to pay extra close attention to students, including making sure graduate students have a chance to see them one-on-one during office hours.

My experience as a student was unforgettable. The rigor of the classes was high but it helped push me in so many ways that prepared me to experience what it would be like to be a school counselor.

Amy Poerschke, M.Ed. ’14

I really think that because of the small class sizes and high-quality professors, I was able to get a lot of individualized feedback about my writing. That set me up for success, not only to be a principal but to go into a doctoral program.
