Counseling and Accessibility Services

Counseling Services

The Office of Counseling Services is designed to complement the college’s academic mission by assisting students with their personal and educational development through individual and group counseling, consultation, educational outreach, and referral, in order to maximize students’ capacity for continued emotional growth and academic success. The Director of Counseling and Accessibility Services is located in room 105 in the Spruill Building and may be reached at 252-985-5369 or

The goal of Counseling is to provide students with a safe, confidential, and supportive environment to discuss life concerns, challenges, and opportunities. Our licensed mental health counselor assists students each year seeking help with transitioning to college, coping with college life, fear of failure, feelings of loneliness, anxiety, depression, academic concerns and many other areas. The counseling process is about problem solving, expansion of awareness and coping skills, and personal growth. One does not need to be in crisis to benefit from counseling services.

To schedule a Counseling appointment, call the Student Affairs Office at 252-985-5178 or visit the Student Affairs Office in the Hardee’s Building during regular business hours. For after-hours “emergencies,” please contact Security at 252-977-7374, or a Residence Life Staff Member on-duty. In the event of a true medical emergency, dial 911 or visit the nearest emergency room.
