Starting a new academic endeavor at a University can be a challenging and demanding experience for some students. New courses, new lifestyle, new friends, and a new atmosphere tends to raise various challenges for students. As students face new problems and stressors that they have never dealt with before and if these are not dealt with properly, the overall university experience can become troublesome. The Counseling Center at Final International University aims to provide psycho-social support, psycho-social education, and counseling services that includes individual counseling, group counseling, skills workshops, crisis intervention and professional referrals when needed. Students currently enrolled at Final International University can obtain these services for free and these services are both private and confidential.
