Counseling center launches blog

A new blog for the counseling department has launched aiming to build a community of support among students at San Diego City College by providing timely information to students.

The issues in the blog will inform students about career options, inspirational stories about students’ successes, money matters related to career choices and orientation that counselors can provide at the counseling office.

“In the counseling department, students come to us,” counselor Ray Wong said, “this blog is our way of reaching out to students.”

According to Wong, the main purpose is to build a community of students and the more students that interact with the website the better it will work.

The content will be updated at least once a week and students are encouraged to offer suggestions and assist the blog as long as it pertains to related matter in counseling.

“We live in the digital age after all,” Wong said. “I think this is a great way to get student involved in their community.”
