Counseling Services

Diverse handsStudents pursuing art careers away from home and in a new environment can experience new pressures that may interfere with living and learning. Counseling Services, staffed with licensed counselors available for individual and group sessions, offers students a confidential and secure environment in which to discuss issues ranging from personal problems to life goals. Full-time counselors help students identify stresses, explore acceptable forms of emotional expression and behavior, and establish healthy mental attitudes to facilitate both personal and professional growth.
