"The School Counseling program at UD is truly the best. The professors provided me with the knowledge and skill set to establish my foundation as a school counselor — a foundation that began on the first day of class with my cohort. That foundation grew each semester, and supported me through practicum, internship, and licensure testing, making it possible for my cohort and me to walk across that stage on graduation day. This foundation continues to guide me in my profession today. The school counseling program has given me priceless learning experiences as well as friendships with cohort members and professors that will last a lifetime."

"The University of Dayton School Counseling program helped me achieve my professional goals by offering the support and resources I needed! After graduating, I was ready to start my career with confidence. During my time at UD, I made many friends in my cohort that I still keep in touch with today! We often reach out to catch up, but also to collaborate professionally and network. Looking ahead, I will be earning my LPC through UD’s Clinical Mental Health Counseling licensure program. I am looking forward to having my LPC to better understand more about the mental illnesses of my students and be more effective when collaborating with clinicians that are working with them. I plan to continue my school counseling career and look forward to taking on a small caseload on the side, when I have my LPC!"
