Student Support

We’re here to help

Navigating the ins and outs of college life can be overwhelming. That’s why we have lots of people here to support you in this journey.

If you need help with academics, your professors are your best first stop. They can recommend tutoring services if that’s what you need to succeed.

If you want someone to chat with – about relationships, challenges, homesickness or just about anything, you might start with our campus counselor or campus pastor.  

For students with disabilities, you can learn about our services here. Our federally funded TRiO Student Support Services offers peer tutoring, peer mentorship and a multitude of support services for students who qualify. For more information, contact Laurie Johnson, director of TRiO Student Support Services.

If you’d like to know all of the professionals in the student life department, you’ll find them here.
