1he currenL eLlLlon for 8eadmlsslon process allows Lhe sLudenLs Lo reflecL on whaL facLors lead
Lo Lhem belng academlcally unsuccessful. Whlle lL's healLhy for Lhem Lo reflecL on whaL was
golng on ln Lhelr llves LhaL led Lhem Lo be suspended afLer 3 quarLers, lL may noL be as effecLlve
Lo change Lhelr academlc hablLs. 1he sLudenLs wrlLe Lhe essays and are read, buL are Lhey
followed up on? A loL of sLudenLs dlsclose very personal sLruggles Lhey've had and LhaL all
deserve aLLenLlon. My recommendaLlon would be Lo sLlll have sLudenLs come ln Lo meeL wlLh
an advlsor Lo reglsLer for classes buL noL wrlLe Lhe essay or go over Lhe essay conLenLs ln depLh.
1he sLudenLs can come ln and have a conversaLlon wlLh an advlsor abouL whaL Lhelr sLruggles
were and how Cascadla can acLually help Lhem vla a counselor, learnlng asslsLance, flnanclal
ald, eLc. 1alklng Lo a sLaff member allows Lhe sLudenL Lo feel more connecLed Lo Lhe college and
Lhere's a sense of care for Lhe sLudenL LhaL ls exhlblLed.

l know all Lhe advlsors are exLremely busy and noL everyone ls a Lralned counselor. 8uL lf
sLudenLs have Lo come ln Lo meeL wlLh an advlsor anyway Lo reglsLer for classes, lnsLead of [usL
Laklng Lhe hold off a sLudenLs accounL, LhaL Llme could be spenL followlng up wlLh Lhe sLudenL
on Lhelr academlc goals, resource managemenL and expecLaLlons for readmlsslon. l know Lhere
ls only one counselor on sLaff and Lhe ldea ls noL Lo send everyone Lhelr dlrecLlon and lncrease
Lhelr workload even more. 8uL lL wouldn'L surprlse me lf sLudenLs dldn'L know LhaL someone
llke a counselor was ln Lhe SASS offlce and are avallable for Lhem.
