University of 新萄京娱乐场 Counseling Center

Counseling Center

Welcome to the 2023-24 Academic Year!

We share in the campus community’s anticipation of new possibilities for everyone’s learning and growth. We are excited to welcome new students, faculty, and staff with all their gifts, diverse viewpoints, and many different life experiences.

We want to acknowledge the complex feelings that are part of adjustment to a new environment and the important journey to find our own place, people, and purpose. The University Counseling Center can be one of the resources available to students as you build (or rebuild) a team of support for your health, mental health, and wellness for this 2023-24 year.

We welcome you to consider an Initial Assessment meeting with one of our staff to talk about your questions, concerns and then develop a plan for support. We have ideas and information about many different campus and community connections. Respect and affirmation for all people is central to the mission and hearts of the University Counseling Center.

We have consultation times open now, and welcome you at (585) 275-3113.
