College is an exciting experience, but it is also a time of transition. During transitions like these, life can get a little complicated. Our professionally trained counselors are here to help you figure it out.
The Student Counseling and Consultation Center’s mission is to support the spiritual, academic, emotional, social, and cultural development of LCU students. Our student-centered programs include counseling, outreach, consultation, training, and educational services. In addition to providing on-campus services, we can facilitate medical and psychiatric referrals, referrals to off-campus therapists, and assessment and testing for various needs. Our goal is to help students address personal challenges and develop appropriate skills and knowledge so that they can take full advantage of their college experience.
