The Freshman Counselor Program was established in 1938 and has been ever since an intrinsic and essential component of Yale’s advising system for freshmen. The program has evolved in many ways over the years, but the general purpose of the program has remained the same: to help ease the transition of incoming freshmen to the academic, social, and cultural life of Yale College. Freshman counselors are expected to be responsible and mature students who can draw upon their own experiences and the training they receive to respond appropriately to the wide range of questions and issues that first-year college students encounter.
What they do
They help freshmen through Camp Yale and give advice throughout the year.
