How We Can Help

It is not uncommon to need additional support as a college student.

Counseling may be of help if you feel concerned about:

Where you are going with your life.

Picking the wrong friends.

Coping with romantic relationship difficulties.

Coping with academic difficulties.

Feeling stressed out or anxious.

Feeling sad or depressed most of the time.

Making new friends in college.

Feeling like you can't go on.

Thinking that things always go wrong.

Coping with a physical or learning disability.

and many more issues that may impact mental health.

If you feel that any one of these applies to you, you may find it helpful to come to the University Counseling Center and talk it over with a counselor. Counseling services are available during normal business hours throughout the year (including breaks between semesters) except on University designated holidays. For more information, call us at (936) 294-1720 or stop by to make an appointment to speak with a counselor. The Counseling Center is located next to Old Main Market.
