WHY DO STUDENTS SEEK COUNSELING?

College is a time of growth. Students are making a major life change. It is common for difficulties to arise during this period of life. Students seek counseling for a range of concerns that may include academic pressures, depression, anxiety & stress, relationship problems, low self-esteem, sexual assault, eating problems, substance abuse, bipolar disorder, and many other issues. Sometimes students just want to have a sounding board to understand themselves better. The Counseling Center can be a safe, confidential environment for students to explore values, coping styles, strengths, and how to best deal with things that can, at times, seem to be too much.
