This two-part report reviews the implementation and operation of a student counseling program conducted during 1977-78 in the developmental studies division of Southeastern Community College (SCC) with funds provided by the Exxon Education Foundation. Part I discusses: (1) the impact of the program on the college's counseling philosophy, (2) the integration of student counseling within the college's freshman orientation program, (3) the administrative problems encountered in implementing the program, (4) the provision of elective credit for student counselors, (5) program evaluation as determined by a survey of the student counselors and their advisees, and (6) recommendations for the implementation of student advising programs at other colleges. Part II describes the week of intensive training provided for prospective student counselors, the target population of developmental students who were served by these counselors, and the guidelines established for counseling contacts during the course of the program. The report is appended by the schedule of activities used during counselor training, the criteria used in selecting student counselors, and the philosophy statement which serves as the basis of SCC's developmental education program.
