Counselling and Guidance Services
Martin's Student Services Centre has several purposes; however, its primary purpose is to help students. A counsellor is available every period of the day as well as before and after classes for personal counselling, vocational counselling, and educational counselling. Students may drop into the office at any time to speak to a counsellor or arrange for an appointment. This personal counselling is considered private and confidential. The Counselling Centre is open from 8 am to 4 pm.
Students are encouraged to drop in: to examine educational, vocational, and personal information pamphlets; to browse through university calendars; to read career pamphlets; to explore opportunities for scholarships and awards; and to look at other materials always on display. Every effort is made to keep the material available in the office up to date.
Students who are having academic problems are encouraged to see the counsellors about ways to improve work and study habits.
Students planning to proceed to a post-secondary institution would be well advised to discuss their goals with a school counsellor. Students need to ensure that their high school program is planned wisely to comply with the entrance requirements of the post-secondary courses the students are contemplating. This is extremely important, as there is a great deal of variation in regard to entrance requirements at the various post-secondary institutions.
Students are also encouraged to come in if they are having issues in their personal life that they would like to talk through.
