Let's Talk

Let’s Talk is a brief, confidential and informal conversation with a Counseling Services staff member. Drop-in hours will be hosted at various locations on campus throughout the year (see schedule and locations below for this term), and it is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Undergraduate and graduate students are welcome to stop by to meet and chat with a counselor, problem-solve concerns, ask questions, find advocacy opportunities or explore resources and options available on and off campus. Let’s Talk generally has a minimal wait time and is a great opportunity to get to know our Counseling Services clinicians. Learn more from our Frequently Asked Questions.
