Confidential Support

The college experience involves a wide variety of opportunities, adventures, and change.

You will learn more about yourself during these years than you can imagine, and there may be times that this may be more challenging or confusing than others.

Students present to counseling services for many issues, including anxiety; depression; relationship conflicts; grief and loss; homesickness; identity concerns; sexuality stress and coping; eating disorders and body-image concerns; sexual assault or intimate partner violence; and substance-use disorders.
