University life is exciting, although some experiences are difficult to handle. Professional, caring counselors at the Walter Young Center are available to help students sort through problems. The service is completely confidential.

Common concerns include:

  • I feel depressed/homesick/confused.
  • My boyfriend/girlfriend and I aren't getting along.
  • I freeze when I take a test.
  • I have trouble being assertive.
