Typical Concerns

College students typically encounter anxiety and stress (i.e., academic, interpersonal, family, work, financial) during the course of their educational experience.  While individuals cope successfully with these demands most of the time, there are times when they need or desire additional assistance.  Typical concerns from students who seek assistance include: 

Developmental/Family Issues - Fear and guilt, anger, frustration, family crisis, concerns from childhood or adolescence, divorce, parenting, and marriage preparation

Personal Issues -
Anxiety, loneliness, depression, anger, guilt, low self-esteem, stress,  grief, relationship issues, family problems, health, alcohol/drug difficulties, and military family life issues.
Relationship Issues -
Roommate problems, boyfriend/girlfriend difficulties, marital issues, and sexual concerns. 

Academic - Study skills, time management, procrastination, test-taking, test anxiety

The list above is not meant to be comprehensive.  If students have concerns other than the ones listed, the staff is available and willing to talk with them about their concerns.
