Who better to assist high school juniors and seniors through the application process then those who lived it just a short while ago. What if universities made a requirement during freshman year, just like freshman english, that students must volunteer at a high school in the college counseling office? Don't have a college counseling office, even better. These college freshman can advise students how to find a college that is right for them, advise how to pick a major, assist in applying for financial aid (if necessary). They would also be able to speak to the highs and lows of transitioning form high school to college. Students could return to their alma-mater or volunteer at high school local to their university. This idea also fosters the character skills like gratitude and selflessness.
