COVID-19: Resources and Support

Approximately 40% of Lafayette students seek counseling during their college career. Our counselors help students identify academic, social, and personal goals and develop strategies to be more resilient when they experience emotional distress or trauma.

The Counseling Center staff treats each student with respect and dignity and aspires to create a safe, affirming, accepting, and welcoming environment that embraces human diversity. We recognize that individual characteristics, such as race, culture, national origin, ability, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and religious beliefs, are important to consider in the counseling process.
