Counseling & Student Development Center

Exterior of the Graham Building

The Counseling & Student Development Center offers a wide range of services to help make the college years more satisfying, rewarding and productive. Our programs are designed to help students grow in self-understanding, to help them use their intellectual and emotional resources as effectively as possible, and to provide a supportive "safety net" at those times when they encounter difficult or painful life circumstances.

All services are free and strictly confidential. Our counselors and psychologists are trained mental health professionals with concentrated study on the specific developmental needs of college students.

Resources for Parents

Now that your student has started college and is starting an independent life, they will begin to face many social, emotional and physical changes. It is important that they still have a strong support system at home while they are away at college. If you are concerned about your student, we have resources to help and bring you peace of mind.
