Call, send us an email, or just stop by. We’ll start by helping you get oriented and settled into school, while learning about your specific situation, needs, and goals, so that we can better help you on your journey.

From then on, consider us your on-campus one-stop-shop to everything you need to be successful. Check in regularly, and if you have a problem, our doors are open. If we can’t help you with something specific, we can point you in the right direction. And, we’re always here to lend a kind ear.
