Mission Statement

The Counseling Services on campus are provided as a support to assist all students with living a healthy and balanced life, in order to achieve academic goals.

Life tends to challenge all of us in a variety of ways. If these challenges are affecting your academic performance, you could benefit by talking with someone in a private and confidential setting. Whether your problem is big or small, always remember it is okay to ask for help! Some students come to counseling for issues such as (but not limited to):

  • Nervousness/worry
  • Unhappiness
  • Feeling overwhelmed
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Anger
  • Alcohol and drug issues
  • Grief and loss issues
  • Someone to talk to
