Having a great quarter? Or maybe a not-so-great one? Love your major and can't wait to take advantage of internship opportunities? Or maybe you have no idea what you want to do and are undeclared or between majors? Miss home? Have roommate issues? Whether you need help working through an issue, navigating resources, or looking to expand upon your current success, EOP counselors are here to assist you.

EOP Counselors practice a holistic counseling approach that takes into account a range of factors that contribute to student success. In partnership and collaboration with other departments, counselors work with students individually and through group settings to address broader student issues.
