Student Counseling Center

Whether this is your first semester or you're a few months from graduation, the transition from the demands of military life to those of the university usually creates a significant amount of stress. From hanging up the "cammies" to putting on the "civies," setting down the "ruc sac" to picking up the book bag, and trading in your "deuce gear" for pens and paper, leaving the all-encompassing "Green Machine" for the classroom is no easy task. Many of you are returning from war-zones; the amount of stress from that experience added to what you must already face is, often, immeasurable and overwhelming.
