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.

Outreach & Self Help

In addition to resources available on this site, we've gathered our most relevant and requested mental health outreach resources in one place: the CSDC Outreach Resources site. These resources are intended to be used by Bucknell students, staff and faculty in your groups and classes. Our goal is to empower you to learn more about mental health and how you can support yourself and others, to help make the college years more satisfying, rewarding and productive. Our programs are designed to help you grow in self-understanding and use your intellectual and emotional resources as effectively as possible.

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.
