Students, faculty, staff, professionals, and alumni may schedule themselves individually or in groups. Counseling services cover academic, career, personal, social, and emotional concerns.
- Psychological Testing
Learning styles, social adjustment, decision-making, leadership skills and life direction planning are assessed through the use of standardized and projective tests.
- Routine Interview
Information about educational and familial background, psychological test results, and academic performance are updated through yearly interviews designed to monitor the student’s progress.
- Enrichment Activities
A menu of seminar-workshops and group dynamics is available to address the common issues of students. Among the topics to choose from are Time Management, Maintaining Healthy Relationships, Stress Management, and School Success.
Organizations and offices can also request the LSOGC for modules for specific purposes (e.g., team-building, leadership, stress management).
- Integrated Non-Academic Formation (INAF) Program
In collaboration with LS offices, the LSOGC provides learning and interactive sessions to hone the students’ personal development. The integration of psychological test results with INAFP (InTACT, NSTP-PLUS, JEEP) enables students understand and manage their personal traits and tendencies as they hurdle the realities and challenges of life. Its purpose is for students to maximize their strengths and resources, work on their vulnerabilities, and make better life choices.
- Career Development Program
This enables the students to gain a better perspective about their chosen course and career, to clarify about their work values, and to formulate a plan of action to achieve their career goals. The LSOGC organizes Shifting Talks and Career Exploration Workshops to address the students’ concern for shifting program concentration.
- Consultations and Referrals
Students, faculty, professionals, and staff can refer and consult on how to assist members of the Ateneo community who may be facing difficulties at the present.
Students and alumni can request their counselors for recommendation letters for graduate studies, study tours, scholarships, and employment.
