Our Services

Career Counseling
Students receive personalized, one-on-one counseling to understand more about personalities, interests and values and how this information relates to careers and majors. Counselors can also provide support through the decision-making process, conquering career and graduate school fears and setting appropriate goals.
Students may schedule an appointment for a career assessment, including the Strong Interest Inventory or FOCUS.
