Counseling & Psychological Services offers a variety of groups for undergraduate, graduate and professional school students each semester. While many of our groups run open-endedly, many of our offerings change semester to semester. The list below is a description of groups commonly offered and you should speak with your primary counselor about group if you are interested in participating in the group program.
Membership in a group is by referral only. All students are referred to group by their primary counselor. If you do not have a primary counselor and want to access our group therapy program please walk-in Monday through Friday from 8am to 4pm and speak with an on call counselor who will assist you in getting into group. Group counseling is a very effective and efficient way to deal with many of the concerns that face undergraduate, graduate and professional school students. Our group program is by referral only and all students in our groups have an assigned primary counselor.
