It is fortunate this college still offers free wellness and mental health counseling to students.
Students should take advantage of the personal counseling, counseling groups, academic counseling, advising and career counseling this college has to offer.
These sessions are free for students who are enrolled here and no appointment is needed.
Sleep, diet, exercise, spirituality, relationships, stress, time management, drug and alcohol use are only some of the things that affect your wellness.
Students encounter difficult everyday situations, so counseling from staff with doctorate and master’s level qualifications will teach students how to survive and conquer challenges.
Other resources this college offers are the workout room on the first floor of Loftin Student Center, entertainment in Loftin, intramural sports, plays, music recitals and visual art exhibits.
