Updated Counseling Center Services

The Counseling Center is working to adapt services to meet your needs during this difficult and unusual time. To protect the health of students and staff, we will no longer provide in-person services at Boe House after Friday, March 20th. This will remain in effect for the remainder of the academic year or until in-person classes resume on campus in the fall. However, we will continue to offer support services for both current clients and for students who have no prior contact with the Counseling Center.
