Student Counseling Service

The Student Counseling Service strives to foster students' growth in body, mind and spirit. We provide a safe, supportive environment where students can discuss any problems or concerns that might be interfering with their personal or educational goals or success.

We offer flexible and varied approaches to helping students maximize their college experience on campus, and we also refer students to off-campus resources as needed. Any concern that a student brings to the Student Counseling Service is treated with respect, caring and confidentiality.

To make an appointment, please call 309-794-7357, or drop by 206 Founders Hall and speak with our secretary Cheri Mizaur. Emergency appointments can be arranged same day.

Working together

We also encourage students to voice any concerns they have about their treatment or SCS policies. Please give us your feedback. We are here to help.
