Learning to take care of your mental health prepares you for a lifetime of overall well-being. Our professional counseling staff supports students as they learn skills to reach their full potential.

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) provides a wealth of services and is free for any degree-seeking student.

Many students experience personal, relational, spiritual, social or academic difficulties they cannot fully resolve on their own. We offer tools to help you:

  • Address personal problems that interfere with academic success
  • Adjust to college life, pressures and changes
  • Resolve life crises that threaten success in college
  • Explore questions of faith and how that impacts daily living
  • Cope with problems which stem from medical or physical concerns
  • Provide referral for medication evaluation
  • Succeed in college while coping with mental illness

Our team provides individual and group therapy for students, orientation for parents, training for faculty and staff, and stress-reducing events during exam weeks.
