Counseling Service

The Counseling Service provides:

  • Confidential individual and group counseling related to personal issues
  • Crisis Intervention
  • Referral to off campus providers for more intensive, longer term, or more specialized treatment
  • Consultation with faculty, staff, parents, and friends who are concerned about a student
  • Education and training with residence hall staff and other campus groups

Services are provided to any currently enrolled student at no additional charge. Students must make their own in-person appointments at the office. Any personal concern is appropriate to bring to Counseling.

Mission Statement

The Counseling Service staff work collaboratively with students to foster their development as whole and resilient persons. This developmental process involves:

  • Resolving personal concerns that often limit full participation in the academic community
  • Enhancing coping and stress management skills
  • Exploring and integrating personal identity
  • Developing individual strengths to meet future challenges and opportunities
  • Building healthy relationships and strong interpersonal skills

Counseling staff also seek to create an environment where faculty, staff, friends, and parents facilitate students' interpersonal growth.

Listening creates a holy silence. When you listen generously to people, they can hear the truth in themselves, often for the first time.
