Support You Need, People You Trust

No matter where you’re coming from, you may encounter challenges that affect your academic and personal progress during your time in college. Counseling services are available to all students. Our personal and mental health counselors give one-on-one counseling and support concerning a wide range of topics, from anxiety and depression to substance abuse and grief. And as always, this student support is personalized, confidential, and free of charge.
