Between 35-40% 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. We recognize that individual characteristics, such as race, culture, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and religious beliefs, are important to consider in the counseling process.
