Counseling is a collaborative, confidential process by which students can define personal and academic goals, make decisions, and/or discover solutions to personal, social, educational or career concerns. Many people experience times when they are puzzled, concerned, or worried about their thoughts, feelings, beliefs or behaviors.
The counseling relationship is one in which a professionally trained therapist helps the person to clarify situations in a way that allows the client to discuss problems openly while feeling safe, understood, cared for, and empowered.
The Early Alert Form provides a confidential referral system which will enable the Counseling Center to be proactive in the support of our students. Some suggestions for use of an Early Alert Form would be: changes in behavior, depression, eating disorders, attendance irregularity, suicidal thoughts, threat or attempt, drug or alcohol use, unusual behavior, loneliness, abuse, rape, death, relationship conflict, and family conflict.

Are You Ready to Quit Smoking?
Available at the Health Center
Developed by the Director of the Duke University Quit Smoking Clinic, Quit Smart has been proven most effective in three published scientific studies. In a study conducted at five U.S. Airforce bases, 66% of those who participated in a Quit Smart Stop Smoking program were still smoke free after 6 months, versus 16 to 30% of those who participated in four other well-known quit smoking programs (published in Federal Practitioner, March 2002, pages 13-22).
When you're ready to quit, please don't fall for the lies and hype of many stop smoking methods offered on the web (vitamins and herbs will not help you quit). QuitSmart has been proven to be more effective than other methods, and you don't need to suffer to succeed! Choose either Quit Smart's self-help Stop Smoking Kit or Quit Smoking Classes.
