Personal Counseling Center

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The college years are exciting and challenging.  ​At times the demands can be complicated and daunting.  The Personal Counseling Center is a place where students can expect professional assistance with emotional and psycho-social concerns.  Anxiety, confusion, depression, and anger are among the many psychological obstacles to well-being, and often diminish potential and achievement.  ​Asking for help during vulnerable times is a sign of strength.  A counselor can give feedback, encourage further questioning, validate self-awareness and responsibility, and support students until self confidence is secure again.

Full time undergraduate students are eligible for all services of the Personal Counseling Center. Part time undergraduates, School of Continuing Education students and graduate students are eligible for consultation and referral​ when appropriate.

All services are confidential within the limits of the law and professional ethics.​​
