The mission of the Office of Counseling and Accessibility Services is to promote personal growth and skills development.
College life can be exciting -- and challenging. Handling coursework, dealing with the pressures of a job and school, living with roommates, socializing, and being exposed to new ideas and lifestyles can bring new friends, new lessons, new questions - and also, at times, new anxieties. Often, talking with someone about these issues can be helpful and even necessary for your mental and emotional health.
