  • Hybrid programs can often be a desirable option for students entering a graduate program in counseling. However, the rigor of such programs, including academic challenges and maintaining personal wellness, could be a barrier to students from marginalized social locations. Additional support through a hybrid orientation might help these students address some of these potential barriers. Social location and perceived personal wellness data were collected for 25 students before and after a faculty-designed hybrid orientation. Participants ratings of perceived overall wellness decreased slightly from preorientation to post-orientation. However, the subscales of social wellness, spiritual wellness, and emotional wellness were the three subscales that showed an increase from pre-test to post-test. Additionally, differences among students with varying social locations were also noted. Application of the findings suggests further inquiry into the recruitment and retention of students from various social locations.
