Each year, the Eastern Illinois University's Counseling Center provides personal counseling to over 600 undergraduate and graduate students. Students visit the Counseling Center for a wide variety of struggles and concerns including, but not limited to, the possible challenges and stress with the transition from high school to university life. 

The Center is staffed by counselors and graduate students, and the services rendered to students are free, voluntary, and confidential. The Center is Accredited by the International Association of Counseling Services.  The staff is dedicated to assisting students in their pursuit of personal and academic growth, to helping students gain a better understanding and appreciation of themselves, and to supporting students as they make important decisions about their lives.

The end of the semester is approaching and we are doing one final push for presentations and tabling events. If your organization or residence hall is interested in a table or presentation, please contact our graduate assistant Kelly Inda. We want to collaborate with you and meet the needs of your organization.
