Counseling Center

The Counseling Center serves students experiencing a wide variety of difficulties, including among other issues, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, adjustment to college, stress, relationships, and substance abuse. The Center offers short-term individual counseling and assists in referrals to appropriate outside mental health clinics and/or therapists. The Center also organizes educational workshops, group counseling, and assists with crisis intervention. All Counseling Center services are free, confidential, and available to all registered students.

Students can be encouraged to go to the Counseling Center by professors, the Office of Housing and Residence Life, faculty, staff, the Health Center, administrators, athletics, the Office of Campus Ministry, the Office of Campus Security and Safety, friends, and family members. If you are concerned about a friend, please feel free to call us and talk. However, students must consent to counseling services even if they were referred by someone else.
