SBU Prospective Students

Guidance Counselors

We’re Here For You

As a high school guidance counselor, you play a vital role in helping students choose the best path after graduation. Certainly, one college does not meet the needs of every student any more than one career suits every person. If you or your students have questions about college, we encourage you to use SBU staff as a resource. We are here to help in every way we can.

Top Advantages of an SBU Education

  • Professors who care: At SBU, not only do we have small class sizes but our professors go above and beyond to help students in their academic and spiritual growth.
  • Record of academic excellence: SBU academic teams in business, speech and debate, psychology, and computer science all have competed well in regional and national contests. Our education majors are sought after by local school systems and our accounting students often secure jobs well-before graduation.
