University Resources

FSC Counseling Center

The FSC Counseling Center provides individual counseling and support to any student struggling emotionally. This can include being overwhelmed with stress, as well as having feelings of anxiety, sadness, anger, grief, or guilt that may impact your everyday functioning. We want all students to know they are not alone during current difficult times. Now more than ever, it is imperative we prioritize our emotional/mental health by seeking professional care when we recognize such emotional struggles within ourselves. Please consider reaching out to the counseling center if you feel you’re struggling emotionally due to either a specific stressor or in the absence of one. Our mission is to be as accessible to you as possible. Ways to access our services include online scheduling or calling our office to schedule an appointment. Students can also walk in and request to speak to a counselor without an appointment, if necessary.
