Counseling Center

Attending college can present unique challenges. It is a time of significant personal growth and decision-making regarding your values, interpersonal relationships, career, and other life goals, within a stressful academic environment. Even the most successful student may experience considerable difficulty with these challenges. Problems often encountered by students include difficulties with academics, interpersonal relationships, family problems, self-identity issues, loneliness, low self-esteem, depression, and anxiety.¬†The Counseling Center offers services designed to complement the University’s academic mission by assisting students with their personal and educational development through a variety of psychological services.
