College is an exciting and challenging time. It can also be stressful because students are transitioning to a new stage in life. Due to these challenges in life, students may experience an increase in stress, anxiety, or depression. Students do not need to figure out how to cope with these challenges by themselves. The counselor encourages students to stop by or call so we can determine how to be most helpful.
