Toward that end, the Counseling Service offers assistance to students with personal crises, ongoing issues of concern, developmental transitions, and more serious psychological problems or conditions. The Counseling Service is also committed to supporting students' personal skills in managing stress in a highly competitive academic institution, as well as encouraging a healthy well balanced orientation to life that honors the mental, physical and spiritual aspects of one's self.
