The college environment is exciting and stimulating. It can also be very stressful. Balancing classes, tests, work, and relationships with spouses, partners, family, and friends may place new demands on time and energy. At times students may feel overwhelmed.
Many students find it helpful to discuss personal concerns, as well as academic difficulties and career decisions, with a professional who takes the time to listen and understand.
Student Counseling Center (SCC) offers students the opportunity to explore personal concerns with a professionally trained counselor dedicated to helping students help themselves in a supportive and confidential environment.
We utilize a brief therapy model. The number of sessions varies depending on student need.
Student Counseling Center staff provide couples counseling for students and their partners. The number of sessions vary depending on student need.
We offer group sessions on an as needed basis. The group process allows students to receive support, learn to interact more effectively with others and to develop more satisfying relationships.
We assist students concerned about their own or someone else's substance abuse through individual appointments, education or other available programs.
All students face decisions about selecting a major and planning a career. Typically, a student will contact Career and Advising Services, located in RCH 110, (208) 792-2313, to begin the education and career decision making process.
