Parents of Alma College Students
The transition to college can be both exciting and overwhelming for students and parents alike. As parents, you play an important role in your students’ adjustment by setting expectations and being supportive while encouraging them to develop additional support systems on campus.
At The Counseling and Wellness Center (CWC) we want to make sure that students know that we are here to help. Our skilled staff is able to assist students in many ways.
The role of Counseling Services is to positively impact academic decision-making and persistence by facilitating student learning about their emotional and psychological development.
CWC staff works to help students resolve problems that interfere with personal, social, and academic functioning while also emphasizing prevention, development, adjustment, and wellness. Student may see a counselor one time to discuss an adjustment issue, another time for personal counseling, or another time for assessments that help give direction during the major selection process.
Students who visit the CWC find that it is a very comfortable place and an extremely valuable resource to use often throughout their years at Alma.
These short-term mental health services are free of charge to all registered students. We also offer referral, crisis, and outreach programming services as well as a resource library, self-help materials and videos that are available without seeing a counselor.
