    The issue with this is that the counselors we had were on borrowed time. I believe it was that the center only had two full-time counselors, with five counselors that left at the start of the Spring, or the end of it. I forgot which. I also think they won’t be able to divulge much information because of the Doctor-Patient Privilege. Instead I think you should move your focus to the students themselves and speaking to those who went to the center during the pandemic; of which I am one.
