There are many great things about college life. But college life can also include many challenges, such as:
Learning & Academic Skills CounselingMost students find the academic demands of the U very challenging-even students who have excellent high school grades. Student Academic Success Services (SASS) helps students bring their academic abilities up to a University level of competence. Individual assistance is offered with Learning Assistance or Academic Counseling.
Career CounselingCareer counseling appointments provide individualized assistance to students in developing a greater sense of self-awareness relevant to the career development process. Often a variety of career assessments are used to facilitate this process, including the most widely used Strong Interest Inventory and the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). In addition, students are aided by resources and guidance to obtain educational and occupational information relevant to their skills, interests, personality and values. Through this process, students can also be supported in the decision-making process, assessing and increasing self-confidence, processing conflicts in values or with significant others, and addressing fears in and identifying strategies for moving forward in the process.

BASICS: Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College StudentsBASICS is a nonjudgmental, evidence-based two-session program that provides personalized feedback about a student's alcohol use. Feedback is discussed from a harm reduction perspective. This approach focuses on decreasing the potential risks of negative consequences related to drinking and does not pressure a student to make changes if he or she does not want to do so.
