Q: Does KSU offer any counseling services?
KSU's Counseling and Psychological Services offers many types of counseling services for students, including:
- Personal counseling that is focused on the emotional, psychological, spiritual, and physical issues impacting one’s ability to function at a normal level. Typical issues include depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self-esteem, anger management, grief and loss and many more.
- Academic counseling that is designed to help students discover how to achieve their desired academic goals. It helps them become self-directed learners by developing effective skills for college success. Common topics are time management, study skills, test anxiety and testing strategies.
- Career counseling that is designed to help students evaluate their abilities, talents, and personality characteristics in developing realistic academic and career goals. Decisions such as deciding what major you want, what kind of career you would be best suited for, and what careers warrant further investigation.
