Counseling & Career Placement


The Counseling Center provides counseling to enrolled students at no charge. The center is staffed with professional counselors who are available to assist students with the many concerns they may have. The counseling staff, composed of a resident director, resident assistants, college counselors, instructors and the college chaplain, is highly trained in counseling and student personnel services. The ultimate objective of the center is to provide students with the opportunities to increase life skills that complement their educational pursuits and professional growth.

The Center Offers The Following Services:

Individual (Personal-Social) Counseling. In individual (personal-social) counseling, students discuss difficulties, thoughts, feelings, or concerns that can help them solve or cope with personal and social concerns. Personal confidences are strictly respected. Students can receive this service not only from the counseling staff located in the counseling center, but also from the dormitory counselor, resident assistants, members of the Spiritual Life Committee, and members of the Intra-Dorm Committee, who are willing and prepared to assist students.

Career Planning Counseling. Assistance in career planning is available through the counseling center. Aptitude tests, interest inventories and personality inventories, are used to help students assess skills and interests in specific career fields. Career counselors help students define career goals and select courses accordingly. Among the resources available in the center are books and videos on career development, job search skills, resume preparation, interviewing techniques and letter writing. The center also provides occupational literature on numerous career fields, including entrance requirements and projected employment outlook. Graduate school information is also housed in the center, including directories, catalogs, and admissions and financial aid information. This, and other career and educational information, is available to students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the community.
