Approximately 40% of Lafayette students seek counseling during their college experience. Our counselors help students identify academic, social, and personal goals and strengthen coping strategies when they experience emotional distress or trauma. Counseling provides students with opportunities to gain support, generate new perspectives, try out new behaviors and attitudes, and develop greater self-understanding. Our counselors are committed to supporting all students and recognize that emotional well-being is vital to student success both inside and outside of the classroom.
Students seeking counseling support can schedule a consultation appointment with a counselor by calling 610-330-5005 or stopping by the 2nd floor of the Bailey Health Center.
We are located on the second floor of the Bailey Health Center building, though the Counseling Center is a separate department from the Health Center.
Academic Semester Hours:
Monday-Friday: 8:45 am-5:00 pm (closed 12-1 pm)
If you need to speak with a counselor after-hours, please call 610.330.5005 to be connected with our telephone crisis support service.
We help students achieve positive mental health and cope with distress in order to make the most of their time at Lafayette.
The Counseling Center hosts an annual THRIVE event each September to kick off the academic year. Students connect with one another while learning practical strategies to foster personal growth and cultivate a positive college experience.
