If you’re struggling in any way whatsoever, there's someone on campus who can help.

Student Health Center

Visit the Student Health Center for anything from physical exams, immunizations, on-site lab testing, and more – including assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of illness or injury.

Counseling Center

Visit the Counseling Center if you’re struggling with issues of anxiety, depression, abuse, learning difficulties, and more – even difficulties adjusting to college.

A unique aspect of our counseling services is our Comfort Dog Ministry! Spend some time with Zoey or Sage to refocus, relax, or re-energize yourself.
