Thursday, January 5, 2012

UWG’s Student Development Center has changed its name to the Counseling and Career Development Center to better reflect the services it offers to enrolled students. 

The Counseling and Career Development Center is located in Row Hall, Room 123.  It provides personal, academic and career counseling, and disability support services. These services are free and confidential.

The center offers the following services:

Counseling: Students find counseling helpful for a variety of reasons. College can be stressful. Counseling offers support, tools and resources for relieving stress. Counselors work with students to build confidence, to help them solve problems and to improve themselves.
