College Advisor Schedule
We have two great college peer advisors that assist our students in making their goals of higher education a reality. They represent different outreach programs such as: Cal State Long Beach's Cal-SOAP and Rio Hondo's Outreach Program. We also have a general college advisor which oversees her own caseload. Stop by the Horizons Office and meet with one of the advisors to start setting goals for the future.
