Is my problem too small to talk about with a counselor?
Student concerns are important. Many students experience adjustment issues at some point during college and would benefit from meeting with a counselor. Often one or two consultations regarding situational concerns can make a big difference. Not all problems require ongoing counseling.
C&DS provides academic accommodations for students with disabilities. If you have a disability or suspect one exists, contact C&DS for an appointment. Community referrals for testing and treatment are available if needed.
