New career counselor Vivian Lutian in CCI for CCE
Vivian Lutian used to be an adult student.
Now she's offering counseling services
to adult students as the first-ever career coun
selor devoted exclusively to the CCE popula
Lutian is available to help CCE students find
their career path through individual counseling,
career-interest testing, and workshops such as
"How to Conduct a Successful Job Search."
Books about career choices and graduate
schools are also available.
Both Lutian and the staff agree that some of
the most important offerings of the Career
Center are the two career fairs held each year.
The first one is Nov. 18 and the staff encour
ages seniors to get resumes into the center so
interviews can be set up ahead of time.
Bill Stevens, Dean of Continuing Education,
said that a career counselor devoted to CCE
students is needed because traditional stu
dents have different challenges than adult stu
dents. "CCE students are almost exclusively
coming back to college and in most cases are
making a sacrifice to come back to college and
working [it] into their existing life." The differ
ence in lifestyles reflects a need for the two
kinds of counseling now available.

In recent years there have
been concerns about a stu
dent's ability and right to voice
their opinion so that it is heard
by the "administration" here at
Guilford College. At times stu
dents in our community have
felt ignored and even alienated
as they tried to voice their con
cern over issues that affect our
daily lives. It is for this very
reason that we have a recog
nized body of students on
campus who voluntarily steps
forward to make sure students'
voices are heard. This body is
called Community Senate.
Career and Community Center is excited to
welcome a new career counselor dedicated to
the CCE population. We encourage all CCE
students to touch base with us, especially to
find out what resources are available for our

academics at the same time. "I know firsthand
how difficult it is to do this and yet I also know
how meaningful it was to me to accomplish it."

In 1994, with three other women, Lutian cre
ated the Women's Resource Center, a non
profit organization to help women improve their
lives. The building burned down six months
after the center began, leading Lutian and the
other women involved to rebuild the center.

Wayman asked, "How do we
define real world?" She
queried whether students
must find real-world applica

can create and explore for the
sake of satisfying curiosity.
With over 40 senators,
Community Senate is charged
with representing the 1,400
traditional students at Guilford,
about 35 students for every
senator; count the overlap and
its closer to 50. Those familiar
with the consensus model may
identify with the difficulty in
agreeing on anything in large
groups. Nonetheless these

The Strategic and Long

revised the planning docu
