Counseling Program Hooding Ceremony & 65th Anniversary Alumni Celebration


In the Summer of 1958, the "Guidance and Counseling" Master of Arts program began at Central Michigan College, now Central Michigan University. Over the last 65 years, there have been multiple program name and format changes, though the goal has always remained the same- to produce quality counselors and welcome them into the profession.

You are cordially invited to celebrate the Central Michigan University's Master of Arts in Counseling Program 65th Anniversary. This will be a special time to welcome you all back to main campus in Mt. Pleasant, MI with opportunities to hear about program updates, reminisce with former colleagues and faculty, and welcome the newest class of graduates into our alumni family. Your presence is kindly requested as we mark this major milestone in our program's history!
