Students have a new program to turn to if they are stressed, anxious, feeling unorganized, or have relationship problems. ‘Let’s Talk’ is a Counseling Center Outreach Program designed to connect students by providing informal walk-in consultations with a counselor. This is considered different from counseling and is not a “clinical service.”
There is no formal intake, no appointments and no fees. People who have issues to talk about should take advantage of this new opportunity said Katherine Wolfe. “Students are encouraged to stop by and talk about what has been making an impact on their behavior. Once a connection is made and the process is exposed, it’s much easier to make a referral for formal counseling,” said Wolfe.
Sessions will be held every Wednesday from 3:30-5:00 PM in Johnson Hall Room 141 and from 6:00-7:30 pm in Oneida Hall (across the elevators on the first floor.) Additional sites, days, and hours may be added on other parts of campus.
