Counseling Center

Welcome

Hello and welcome! We are glad you are here. The Counseling Center works with Gustavus students to enhance their personal development and academic achievement. At times, students experience personal, relational, social, or academic difficulties which they cannot fully resolve on their own, and find it helpful to talk to a professional counselor about their concerns. In order to help students with such difficulties, the Counseling Center provides a variety of confidential services.
