Can someone refer me to the Counseling Center?
Yes, you can be referred to the Counseling Center. A faculty member, friend, roommate, coach, parent, etc. can contact the Counseling Center stating that they are concerned about you and that they believe that you might benefit from talking with a counselor about whatever it is that you are dealing with at the time. Subsequently, we will send you a letter to inform you of the referral and also invite you to schedule an appointment to come in to talk with a counselor. Of course, with these types of referrals it is your decision whether or not you choose to follow through with the invite. However, we strongly urge that you consider at least an initial visit to give us a chance to talk and see how we might be of help to you.
