Scheduling Appointments

Students may schedule time to talk with a counselor by calling the Counseling Center (during business hours) at 765-998-5222 or x85222 on campus. Scheduling via e-mail is also available at After business hours, a confidential message may be left on the voicemail at 765-998-5222. Please do not use voicemail for urgent needs or emergencies. Voicemails are only checked Monday–Friday 8 am–5 pm.

While we are encouraging scheduling via phone or email whenever possible, students may also stop by the Counseling Center during business hours and schedule an appointment with the administrative assistant. The Counseling Center is located in Boren 250 (Campus Ministries and Counseling Center Office) on the 2nd floor of the Student Center, right above Chick-fil-A.

Parents are not able to schedule appointments for their student. If you believe your son/daughter could benefit from professional counseling, please speak directly to them regarding your concern and desire for them to seek mental health support. If after taking this step, parents need further assistance, they may contact the student’s Hall Director. 


If you are in crisis and need to speak with a counselor immediately, please communicate this clearly when you call the Counseling Center. Emergency appointments can be made the same day you contact the Counseling Center.

During non-business hours, a counselor can be reached (for emergencies) through any residence Hall Director or campus police (ext. x85395 or x85555). If the situation appears to be life threatening, please call 911.
