Orangeburg, N.Y. – Six students were 2012 inductees in LIU Hudson’s Counseling Honor Society. They are India Bjaelker, Nicole Donato, Kim Gill, Judith Harrington, Brianne Hickey and Michelle Spadaro.

Students can join the Counseling Honor Society if they have completed 12 credits in a counseling program and have a 3.5 or better cumulative average. They also need a letter of recommendation from an LIU counseling professor and must submit a personal statement about why they want to join.

The Society’s mission is to promote scholarship, research, professionalism, volunteerism and service learning, leadership and excellence in counseling, and to recognize high attainment in the pursuit of academic and clinical excellence in the profession of counseling.

A state-of-the-art Counseling Lab is available to all students to practice their counseling techniques while video recording the counseling sessions, so they are able to observe, learn and receive feedback from their professors.

Some of the outstanding recent projects of the Society are: hosting presentations on “Understanding and Meeting the Challenges of Aging” and “Violation of Trust”; a “What’s Cool, What’s Not Cool” conference to empower teenage girls within Rockland County to make positive decisions that will help affect their lives; and a Prom Dress Drive, which made it possible for 97 delighted teens to be dressed in fashionable gowns at important occasions.

LIU Hudson students can pursue their master’s degrees and certificates of advanced study in education, educational leadership, business administration, school psychology, school counseling, mental health counseling, marriage and family therapy, health and public administration, pharmaceutics, and library and information science.
