Welcom, Class of 2021

The Counseling Center welcomes the class of 2021! Here is some helpful adjustment advice from the director.

On Recent Events

The recent events in Charlottesville have been disturbing and distressing to many in our community. Our hearts go out to the loved ones of Heather Heyer who was killed at the site as well as Lt. H. Jay Cullen and Trooper Berke M. M. Bates, police officers who died in a helicopter accident near the protests. Those who have been injured are also in our thoughts. Fascism, Nazi salutes and flags, white supremacy and hatred of Jewish people, POC, LGBTQIA people, and immigrants were blatant in these protests. Colgate University's Counseling Center deplores and strongly opposes hatred, bigotry, racism, violence, and terrorism which are incompatible with the ideals of our mental health professions. We support inclusion, diversity, multiculturalism, and social justice. We strive to provide a place where emotional and complex issues can be discussed in a non-judgmental environment.

Students who are distressed by this or similar events are invited to make an appointment at the Counseling Center or Haven to discuss their feelings about these events. We can help each other get through these difficult times.

Concern for a Peer

It is important to share that information so we can seek to provide assistance.

Sexual Violence

Colgate University takes gender-based violence seriously and provides support and information on sexual violence to survivors, friends and families of survivors, and the university community.
