Guidance Counselors

Choosing a college is one of life's first big decisions. As a guidance counselor, you play a vital role in helping students make that decision. When you recommend that students give Virginia Wesleyan University close consideration, you connect them with an institution with a strong commitment to academics, a campus with a vibrant campus life and a college that will prepare them well for graduate school or their career.
