Campus Support & Resources
Here are a few on-campus offices and resource current students can contact for help.
Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS): CAPS can help you manage emotional and psychological stress, anxiety, and depression. Do not hesitate to visit CAPS if you are feeling any of these symptoms, or simply need to speak with someone to feel better and pursue a plan for improved emotional and psychological health. Individual, couple, and group sessions are available, and same-day appointments available upon request for urgent needs if you are feeling very distressed and need to speak with someone. Student Presenting to CAPS with a stated urgent need will be seen the same day as necessary. Students will be asked to provide information about their situation/presenting concern. If the nature of the need is urgent, and/or if a student indicates concerns about harm, the student will be seen as soon as possible on the same day. Call to schedule an appointment anytime.
