School Counseling Program – I believe that at Brooklyn College, each student is recognized. When walking the campus of Brooklyn College, it's always amazing to see students active. One day we may have numerous student groups focusing on fundraising for Cancer, the next day another slew of student groups would be outside petitioning for the government to not increase tuition. You'll never be bored on campus. The campus is absolutely gorgeous, and the campus is BEYOND DIVERSE. You meet students from every ethnicity and culture daily! The school counseling program is no different. Our school counseling program offers a bit of schedule flexibility and offers the most practical course work out of the many school counseling programs elsewhere. The courses are realistic and pertinent to issues facing our Education system today. Each student is required to apply for membership with ASCA (American School Counselor Association)their first year of Graduate school. Being a member has opened up many opportunities for us and has kept us all up-to-date with all there is to know for current or prospective School Cousnelors. Our professors are knowledegable and supportive of every endeavor we decide to take on. It's indeed a great program.

The facilities at Brooklyn College are actually quite amazing. In the newest building they have full-sized gyms, an olympic-sized swimming pool, large workout rooms, smaller practice courts, and dance studios upstairs. Next to and behind that building they have tennis courts and a track. The Brooklyn College Library is the largest and most technologically advanced in the CUNY system, boasting over 1.3 million books, open study rooms, smaller private study rooms, hundreds of computers, free printing, etc. The off-campus residence hall is only two years old and has all the amenities, and Roosevelt Hall is soon to become the site of the most comprehensive science center in CUNY!

Housing in NYC is expensive nomatter what and the school dorms are the same. There's no help for anyone here and the school system makes it hard to allow students to go to school without worry. Like maybe a metrocard for college students? Wake up, students can't pay for their classes, much less 5 dollars a day to get on a bus to and from school. Four days of class? 20 bucks a week! No online classes? No condensed classes? It's nonsense in the sloth and greed of schools and in the politicians who spend more on guns than their own kid's education. Well, maybe not THEIR kids...but you get what I'm saying.
