Counseling

Public and Alumni Career Program

The Career Counseling Library's Public and Alumni Career Program is an individualized opportunity to explore new career possibilities, evaluate current career plans, and increase self-awareness.

Psychiatry Services

Medications often can be helpful to students struggling with depression, anxiety and other emotional concerns that have a biological component. We have a strong commitment to helping students understand their difficulties and to offering a range of options to make things better.

Our psychiatric clinicians (psychiatrists and nurse practitioners) can meet with students to determine which medications might be helpful and to recommend a course of treatment.
