Faculty and staff are encouraged to make referrals to Counseling Services, located
in 310 Keeny Hall, which provides a variety of resources for students with personal,
educational, and career concerns. Counseling services are free and confidential. 
Personal counseling covers such problems as depression, anxiety, self-esteem, eating disorders, and loneliness. Educational counseling addresses stress reduction, time-management, motivation, and study techniques, and
is enhanced through a Student Development Lab. The 
Career Decision Making program assists students with clarifying goals, interests, and abilities and identifying
career alternatives. The latter is offered via career workshops as well as individual
counseling, and a 
Career Resource Lab houses computerized career assessments and information. Counseling services are delivered
by licensed professional counselors who are also available to consult with members
of the University community about student development and mental health issues on
campus, and they prepare members of the Student Speakers Bureau to make presentations
to classes and other student groups.
