Safe and Inclusive Support
(Fall and Spring Semesters)

The Counseling Center in Shoemaker Hall is a safe and inclusive space where counselors provide support to students from underrepresented populations. Recognizing that stigma about seeking counseling and unfamiliarity about the counseling process prevents some students from getting the help they need, the Counseling Service makes requesting time with a counselor easier to specific student populations.
Free unscheduled time with a counselor is available to  international students Monday through Friday from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. Please note that students will be asked to complete several brief surveys prior to meeting with a counselor within an hour of arrival.
