When students have questions about academics or college planning, they know they can always talk to their academic counselor. Although students are told that their counselors are always available, they’re not aware of everything their counselor does for students. The Royal Reporter was able to interview Mrs. Moore and Mrs. Troisi to get the inside perspective on what it’s like to be a Rosary counselor.

Mrs. Moore is busy helping the seniors with college applications.

RR: What does your usual day consist of?

Mrs. Moore: It consists of processing transcripts that colleges request and suggesting different colleges for students to choose from.

Mrs. Troisi: Well it really depends on the time of year. I’m the senior counselor so the majority of my time in the fall is usually spent on college applications with seniors. From August to January, I meet one-on-one with students and their parents to talk about college planning. There are also other day-to-day activities such as helping my tenth grade students who are struggling in a class and helping my juniors who are starting the process of college admissions.

RR: What are some of the ways that you help students?

Mrs. Moore: I calm their fears, reassure them, and help them look at new schools to consider. I am also their biggest cheerleader.

RR: Is there anything you want students to know about how you can help them?

Mrs. Moore: I am always available no matter what. They can ask me questions and if I don’t know the answer, I will figure it out.

RR: What has been the most stressful part about helping seniors with applications?

Mrs. Troisi: Making sure that students have a workable list of colleges that are the best fit for them is very stressful. I have to make sure that their test scores and their GPA match up to what the college admissions is accepting. Deadlines are also stressful because I want to make sure that I’m not missing a deadline and that I’m communicating to students the process and procedures to make it less stressful for them.

RR: Is there something else you would like students to know?

Mrs. Moore: I love my job! I didn’t attend Rosary as a student but I feel like a Rosary Royal.

Mrs. Moore loves working at Rosary and helping students.

We appreciate everything the counselors do for Rosary students and are glad that they are part of the Rosary community!
