The Role of the Counseling Center

The Counseling Center plays a vital role in the life of the College by offering a range of psychological services to members of the College community.  Our primary goal is to support students' academic success in the transition to adulthood.

To facilitate this goal we work cooperatively with faculty, administrators, parents and staff toward promoting the intellectual and personal growth of students during their years at the College.  Psychological services are directed toward encouraging the psychological growth and development ordinarily experienced in late adolescence and young adulthood.

Some typical issues students discuss are:  axciety, depression, relationship problems, disordered eating, alcohol and other drug abuse, family conflicts, sexual assault, identity development and issues of bias and discrimination.  Services include individual psychotherapy, urgent care, consultation, outreach and referrals.
