Counseling Team

Burroughs college counselors share their experiences and expertise as a team to support the college search process for every student.

Burroughs college counselors do not specialize by college, region, size or program. In addition to attending professional workshops with college admission representatives, counselors regularly visit colleges and universities throughout the United States to keep abreast of new developments in college admission practices and to keep lines of communication open between Burroughs and admission officers from colleges and universities.
