While students are here to achieve academic goals, they also have
personal, social and vocational activities that need their time and energy.
These other aspects of life can influence the student's ability to stay focused
and motivated, as they pursue their educational goals. Students often seek
counseling due to increased levels of stress. Some common stresses include
pressure from academic courses, difficulties in relationships with children or
significant others, health concerns and other situations that occur in life.
The counselors facilitate academic progress and help students to
achieve their personal and career goals. A counseling relationship allows
students to confidentially discuss their personal thoughts and feelings in order
to improve problematic life situations and enhance personal potential.
