Welcome to All Students

Published August 18, 2014

We are delighted to serve the ASU community. We hope that you will see us as a  hospitable resource. We are eager to serve you or help you get established in a satisfactory and healthy lifestyle. Our doors are open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and we are available for emergency consultation after hours and on weekends when classes are in session. We take great pleasure in the quality of our center. You've made a wonderful choice in coming to Appalachian State University. We wanted you to know it will be our pleasure to serve you. We are wishing you all the best in your time at ASU and beyond. We want to help you flourish during your time here at ASU and in Boone.

Walk-in Hours
Tuesday & Wednesday Mornings             9:00 - 11:00 a.m. (Note: Sign in Begins at 8:30 & Ends at 10:00 a.m.)
Monday - Thursday Afternoons                  1:00 - 4:00 p.m.
Friday Afternoons                                          1:00 - 3:00 p.m.

As a reminder Walk-In times are those certain hours available each day when you can come into the Center and see a counselor. Please keep in mind that Walk-In sessions are on a first-come, first-served basis. When you initially arrive, you will be asked to fill out paperwork, which will take approximately 20 minutes to complete. During the Walk-In session itself, which normally lasts 20-30 minutes, a counselor will work with you to determine what your needs are and how your needs can be best met. You may be referred to an individual counselor, a group, and/or another agency on campus or in the community. Please be aware that we often refer students to different agencies on campus or in the community based on their individual needs and our scope of services. Please also be aware that a walk-in session is an intake where needs are assessed, not a typical therapy session. At the end of your walk-in session be sure that you understand what your next steps are before you leave. If you are uncertain, please call the Center at 828-262-3180.
