How do you reach students who seem the least receptive to your college advising efforts? Maximizing the chances that they will make good decisions is incredibly challenging. Jeffrey C. Makris, Director of College Counseling at the Urban Assembly Gateway School for Technology, shares his experiences with 3 students - each with a different and interesting perspective of the colleges they will "attend".
Even the shortest relationships with students—those that last just a few months—are about much more than college. They’re about the student’s family, their future career, their current school experience, any health problems… so many things! This is all in addition to college preferences, the student’s academic profile, household finances, etc. You have to consider it all when you’re counseling the student.

Options Center’s College Adviser and Training professional, Sandy Jimenez, offers her perspective and approach to early college awareness, and the tools she utilizes personally and professionally as she works with high school students in New York City.
