Counseling Services provides confidential education and counseling services to students regarding the harmful effects of abusing alcohol/drugs, and how to enjoy academic and college life without the use of such substances.

Students who are concerned about their own use of alcohol/drugs, or are worried about a friend's use, should contact the Center at x7270 and ask to speak with one of our counselors, or with Keith.
