Kirsten Graham and Alyse La Rue
GSE Class of 2012
As they prepared to graduate, we asked our GSE Student Ambassadors and Graduate Assistants to reflect on their experiences at Fordham and at the Graduate School of Education. Alyse La Rue received an M.S.E. in Mental Health Counseling this May.
My time at Fordham was more than just the achievement of a master’s degree- it was a time of personal growth as well. I began the Mental Health Counseling program unsure of what I had just gotten myself into, but I am leaving with a deep knowledge of my field and myself, friends and faculty that will be colleagues in the future, and as a leader. When I first came to Fordham I really didn’t know what to expect. I was nervous; did I do the right thing going back to school? Was this degree going to to get me where I wanted to go? Could I really become a therapist? I chose Fordham because I knew I wanted a top-notch education, and when I left Admissions events I felt as if I had gotten a big hug.
