Summary

To give them effective personal and vocational counseling, student personnel workers must consider certain facts about junior college students. Although they usually have lower academic ability, they have other attributes worth enhancing. Testing and other selection tools generally apply only to academic aptitude, not to other qualities, and have a negative effect on the expectations of minority students. If they are expected to move upward from a low socioeconomic status, they step into conflict with background and family. While they are in great need of new ideas and life styles, they need not reject all their existing values. Even though wanting their children to prosper, parents give them little real encouragement. If they must work while in school, the time thus spent is at the expense of their grades. They often scorn the junior college because it is cheap, forgetting that it makes their mobility possible. They are rarely intellectually oriented and must be shown the worth, to themselves and their careers, of the many other choices. They need co-curricular activities for the sharing of cultural experiences. Since those most in need of counsel rarely seek it, counselors must devise ways of going to them. They must learn to live with a normal amount of ambiguity, working into their career through a narrowing process of choice. The writer discusses many other pertinent characteristics and suggests ways for the counselor to make them work to the advantage of the students. (HH)
