Information For RA's
This is a reminder that both the Counseling & Psychological Services and Health Center offer limited hours and services for students enrolled in May term classes. We are closed for the summer beginning on June 1 and will resume services in the fall beginning on July 31.
In the event of a medical emergency, please …..
* Call 911
* Non-emergent health care needs may be referred to Prime Care.
In the event of a counseling crisis, please contact the appropriate community service (see the listing below):
For attempted suicide or immediate suicidal threat, contact Campus Safety for assistance in coordinating transportation to Holland Hospital Emergency Department. They will assist with contacting an ambulance. Please do not transport an actively suicidal student in your own vehicle.
For distressed students, or students who need on-going counseling, the student can contact Holland Hospital’s Behavioral Health at 355-3926. The student will need their insurance information when they call for an appointment.
For sexual assault or partner violence, contact Center for Women in Transition at 392-1970. This is a 24 hour crisis service and offers both medical and counseling care.
If you are uncertain about where to begin, please consult with Richard Frost, VP for Student Life or John Jobson, Associate Dean of Students.

Ten Steps to Effect Listening
Listening is a precious gift – the gift of time. It helps build relationships, solve problems, ensure understanding, resolve conflicts and improve accuracy.
More Listening TipsMentally screen out distractions, like background activity and noise. In addition, try not to focus on the speaker’s accent or speech mannerisms to the point where they become distractions. Finally, don’t be distracted by your own thoughts, feelings or biases.
