Welcome to College Counseling at Baruch College Campus High School. We invite you to stop in often, to check the college notices on the bulletin boards, and to take full advantage of the many resources that have been accumulated for your use. We look forward to getting to know you better as we work together closely over the next year.
This venture is a partnership in which each of us has a vital role. We have compiled information that we believe will help you understand your roles as well as the way the college application process works at BCCHS. Your initial role is to start the process with some serious self-assessment. Be positive about your future. Think about what you might enjoy studying, but take time to consider all aspects of your life. Give thought to how you most enjoy spending your free time. Think about activities, sports or groups in which you hope to continue participating, or maybe take up for the first time. For most students, college will be a residential experience. Your happiness and success in college will be influenced greatly by not just the classes, but the overall atmosphere of the campus. Your job is to choose intelligently. The more time and effort you dedicate to the process, the more satisfactory the results will be.
BCCHS is committed to helping you in your college planning. We recognize that it is not a small job. It requires substantial thought, organization and commitment. It is not, however, too complicated for any of you to handle. Remember that each of you has many “good” choices. This can and should be a fun and exciting period of your life. Go into the process with optimism and enthusiasm, and you will find it to be a positive experience.
Sincerely, The BCCHS College Office (212) 683-7440, ext. 2
