The following timeline was created to provide a big picture of freshman year. Personal/Academic Counselors will meet with their freshmen individually at least once a semester. Counselors will schedule freshmen for these meetings throughout the Fall & Spring. Students are always welcome to drop in to see their counselors. Freshmen will also be meeting in small “Cura Freshmen Formation Groups” throughout the year to help them transition to life at St. Ignatius. The Counseling Department will host a parent series with outside speakers on various topics throughout the year.
