  • Going to counseling was one of the best decisions I’ve made. I wouldn’t be the person I am today without that. I went my sophomore year and worked through my feelings and emotions of my parents’ divorce. Since then, I’ve been open to learning about myself and healthier ways to do life. I think I can now accomplish anything that’s thrown my way.

  • Counseling Services really helped me during my senior year. I was experiencing some feelings of sadness and frustration. My mindset is now a lot more positive than it was a year ago. Don’t be afraid to go to Counseling Services. We all have problems in our lives, so why not let those burdens go with the help of some caring counselors?

  • It’s just been this beautiful experience of recognizing the importance of not only physical health, but mental health, emotional health and spiritual health and how they all interconnect with one another. If you’re thinking about going to see Counseling Services, I really encourage it.

  • Counseling at C-N has been a very beneficial experience. I had depression sophomore year and going to counseling helped me with that. I’ve recovered and carried on as a successful student, engaged in many activities, leading a happy life. I’ve returned occasionally with various one-time concerns I needed advice about. Anything from a serious problem to a question—they’re there for you.
