After Hours Care & Emergencies
If you need emergency care, are in-crisis, or a victim of sexual assault please refer to our After Hours Care & Emergencies page.

The college years are traditionally a time when students experience increased personal growth and maturity through their encounters with different people, values, and concepts. Learning to balance the resources of time, energy, and freedom with academic responsibilities and interpersonal relationships can be difficult for even the most successful students.

Our staff provides short-term individual counseling to assist students in identifying, assessing, and resolving concerns which may interfere with their academic, social and emotional growth and development.

To schedule a counseling appointment at the Dr. Bob Smith Health Center, please call 214-768-2277.
