Student Groups at The Counseling Center

Groups are one of the most effective tools for addressing issues common among college students. Some groups feel like a class, where you are learning new skills. Other groups offer a private place to connect with peers who face similar challenges and to get support.


On Campus: Call campus police at 978-837-5911.

Off Campus: Call 911 or go directly to the nearest emergency room.

Please call 978-837-5444 with questions or to tell us what group you want to see in the future.
