Psychological & Emotional Support

Without support, college can seem overwhelming.  Support can come in many forms -- a group of people who understand what you’re going through, a therapist you can talk to one-on-one or even a voice at the other end of the phone at 3:00 a.m.  Student Affairs offers resources to help with a variety of concerns including academic success, life’s problems, and personal growth and development.
