Welcome to The Counseling Center

Home For the Holidays (Taking Care of Yourself)

When we think of the holiday season, many of us think of a time to celebrate with family and friends. This can be fun and relaxing, AND it can be stressful. Many of us may feel pressure to reconnect with lots of people, spend money on gifts, and feel joyful all the time, but in reality we may feel our emotional, physical, and financial resources being stretched thin.

Welcome to the Counseling Center!

Our world needs all of us to create space for kindness. At the Counseling Center, we have created different ways for students to experience mutual kindness, compassion, and support. Here are 5 ways to connect, build skills, and learn about yourself as we begin the fall:

1. Kindness and support is offered throughout campus. The Counseling Center has created Support for My Journey as a way for students to reflect on what they need to support their mental health and find the specific program on campus or in the community that can help meet that need. Find your support!
