History

Many present day services evolved from those the original Counseling Center offered in 1956 such as financial aid, international student services, disability services, standardized testing, pre-admission counseling and exit interviews, as well as the personal, academic and career counseling that remain in its purview today. The center moved to the present location in the Student Health Services building in 1999. The last 20 years have witnessed tremendous growth in visibility and scope of services.
