We are here to help you flourish in your campus life.

Student Life

Student life entails freedom and the possibility for you to face challenges and flourish in any area of your interest. It is an important and exciting time for personal growth and expanding your horizons in many areas, including academic learning, extracurricular activities, part-time jobs, and meeting new people.

However, many students struggle with uncertainty about the way they are to proceed in their academic/career pursuits and other areas of their life.
While such struggle is a meaningful step toward the future, it is sometimes difficult to deal with on your own and can cause distress that undermines your functioning.

The student Support Room (SSR)

The SSR offers a range of psychological services including individual counseling, group work and various workshops to help you accomplish what you envision in your student life, restore balance, build strength and increase your personal well-being.
When you have a concern that you would like to talk with someone about, please contact or come to the SSR to make an appointment. We are here to help you.

Counseling at the SSR

Counseling services at the SSR are provided by certified professional counselors in a strictly confidential setting. After an initial session, you may be referred to other agencies deemed more appropriate to your concern.
The SSR also offers a space for you to come and relax any time during our hours of operation when you feel like resting in a quiet place. You might enjoy browsing magazines, or find some books or comic books that give you inspiration.
