Freshman counselors were made a part of Yale College's advising system in 1938 and with the addition in 1972 of a special group of ethnic counselors are an intrinsic and essential characteristic of Yale's educational program for freshmen.
Freshman counselors are appointed by Yale College and are thus placed in a position of responsibility for freshmen that is institutional in its nature.
While the responsibilities of the freshman counselor are heavy, and the demands made on the counselor's time and energy are great, the experience a counselor enjoys in participating in the education and life of his or her freshmen is one of incalculable richness and satisfaction.
