Free counseling is offered to Snow College students to help with the stresses of student life.
The Counseling and Wellness Center, directed by Allen Riggs, focuses on helping students to manage the challenges they face, whether emotional, social, or otherwise. Trained professionals are there to make sure that students get the help they need.
One Snow College student, who asked to remain anonymous, said that the Counseling and Wellness Center has been a “lifesaver” for her. “When I started school, my anxiety got so bad that I couldn’t even focus on class or homework. I finally went to see a counselor and it has helped so much. I’m learning how to deal with my anxiety and function as a college student.”
Another student said it has helped her to “see her problems in a different way, and when I can see my problems in a different way, they’re easier to overcome.”
There are many different services offered, including individual and group therapy, crisis intervention, student mentors, and much more. Each of these services remain confidential for students involved.
The Counseling and Wellness Center is located in Room 109 of the Social Science Building. If students feel they could benefit from these services, they may stop in to schedule an appointment, or can call 435-283-7136. These services are available to students attending the Richfield campus as well.
