The Office of Counseling Services provides a place for students to discuss these multifaceted changes in a private and confidential setting. Counseling helps students cope with these challenges and make sound decisions. Students who are experiencing serious emotional difficulties, or who require specialized or longer-term treatment, can receive referrals to professional services off campus.
Services are free of charge. The staff follows strict professional codes of confidentiality. Counseling records are not part of University records.
Common issues include:
Alcohol/substance use and misuse
Anxiety (includes overcoming test anxiety, performance anxiety)
