School Counseling / 5th Year Program
Analisa Fazio is from Newton, Massachusetts and attended Boston College for her undergraduate degree.
Why did you choose BC?
She became interested in BC because of the Jesuit values and education that drive the mission of the university and the academics. She has also been lucky enough to have grown up around the campus because her mother worked and got her masters at BC, and her brother, cousin, and aunt also attended. She entered BC in the Morrissey College of Arts and Sciences, unsure of what exactly she wanted to focus her studies on. By the end of freshman year she found her way to the Lynch School of Education and Human Development and chose to double major in Applied Psychology & Human Development and Perspectives on Spanish America. She has a passion for learning and speaking Spanish that has been fueled by her Ecuadorian heritage. So she decided to spend her entire junior year abroad. The first semester in Madrid, Spain, and the second semester in Quito, Ecuador. While at BC she was involved in the International Assistant program, the Pulse program, and the LTL Dominican Republic Service and Immersion Trip. Throughout her years at BC she knew she wanted to be involved in education, She just was not sure in what position. Analisa applied to the 5th year program in the Lynch School during her junior year abroad for the Secondary Education track. Through different experiences she realized teaching was not for her, so she switched to the School Counseling program.
Academic and/or Career Interests
She realized her professional passion focused more on the individual students' needs, their family situations, learning differences, and personal exploration. As a School Counselor, she has the chance to work with students on the intersection of a number aspects of their life.
