Student Counseling Center


Support for LGBT Students

College is a time of questioning, exploring and self-discovery.

Many students find themselves undergoing numerous transitions in their lives—moving away from home, facing new academic challenges, developing new relationships, considering career choices—and also growing awareness about their identity.

The Student Counseling Center is a safe space for anyone who identifies as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer, or anyone who is questioning their own sexual orientation or gender identity. Students are encouraged to come in to talk with any of the counselors to help with the life-long journey of self-discovery.
