Don Nickel - Counseling & Matriculation


Welcome to my faculty web site. I am a member of the Counseling faculty at De Anza College.My job title is the Online Student Services Counselor. This is a fancy way of saying that part of my job is to find ways to use technology to improve the student experience as well as the way counselors perform their jobs.

I look forward to working with you towards your academic and personal success. I am available to meet with you on a drop in basis in the Counseling Center. Please select the link below for my office hours. 

One of my favorite places is Death Valley. Telescope Peak is in the distance behind me. From the top of Telescope Peak one can look west to see Mt. Whitney, the tallest mountain in the continental United States and east to Bad Water, the lowest point in the western hemisphere.
