The Aurora Campus Counsellor is here to support students throughout their college experience. Counsellors listen but don't judge, helping students figure out a range of issues. From classroom or instructor issues to dealing with things at home like partners or children, Aurora College's dedicated counsellors are here to help take down barriers that might keep students from succeeding in school. At different times throughout the school year the Counsellors teach workshops (some in class, some after class) on topics like alcohol and drugs, family violence, parenting, FASD and self esteem. Counsellors are a vital part of campus management, making sure that students enjoy events like AC week, Graduation and Orientationand working with the Student Council and the Graduation Committee on fundraising and planning. The Counsellor also assists students with scholarship applications.
