Faculty and staff work collaboratively with students to foster the self-knowledge and skills necessary to succeed personally, academically, and professionally. The center allows students the opportunity to integrate their personal goals with their academic goals.
    • Individual Counseling: In some cases, a student might benefit most from talking to a counselor once a week in individual sessions. Sessions are usually forty to fifty minutes long and are a time for a counselor and a student to work together on the student's problem or concern. Since the Counseling Center tries to serve as many students as possible, we have a forty-session limit for individual counseling. Students may want to discuss this session limit and their counseling needs with their counselor.
    • Group Counseling: Students often benefit most from sharing information, experiences, and support with students with similar concerns. Every semester, the center offers Interpersonal Understanding Groups for students who wish to increase self-awareness and enhance personal relationships.

We can assist with group and interpersonal communication, students in crisis, student concerns, program planning, and a number of other concerns and issues. In addition, our faculty members assist people who are friends of students with emotional concerns.
