When you first come to the Health Center, you'll start with the receptionist on the main floor, check in at registration, then come upstairs to the Counseling Center for a short intake meeting with a counselor. After this meeting, another appointment will be scheduled at the first mutually convenient time available.
Please inform the receptionist if your situation requires immediate attention. Special arrangements will be made for you to meet with a counselor as soon as possible.
Some common topics that students talk to us about include:
