Concerns may include: wanting to be more confident and content with who you are, want to be more assertive and comfortable when addressing others.
College is a time filled with many changes, transition, excitement, and challenges. Most students, at one time or another, experience various personal, emotional, and/or interpersonal concerns. During these times, it can help to reach out for support from friends, family, academic advisors, spiritual supports, and professional counseling. At ECAPS, we strive to help students build on strengths and address these concerns in ways that allow them to make the best of their college experience. We offer free and confidential individual, couples, and group counseling, as well as consultation and workshops.
Students may encounter obstacles or difficulties associated with college life—academic, financial, personal, interpersonal, or wellness—or simply seek greater connection and support. Emerson has fantastic resources designed to address the holistic needs of students.
The Office of Student Success helps students to explore their options, navigate campus systems, and connect to services, supports, and each other. And sometimes, we just listen.
The Student Care and Support Office receives referrals from students, faculty, staff, etc. about students of concern. The Office works with key partners on campus to provide support for those students with a goal of helping them succeed academically and personally.
Our mission is to provide quality accessible health care for students, sponsor programs that promote healthy choices, and enhance our campus community. The Center provides a range of health and wellness services and programs to meet the needs of Emerson College students.
The Center for Spiritual Life is Emerson’s inclusive, multifaith hub for religious and spiritual programming, support, and education. Our team of chaplains and student leaders work to foster a campus environment where faith traditions and spirituality can be practiced freely and wholly. Through one-on-one conversations, retreats, lunches, and meditative gatherings, we seek to provide spiritual nourishment to our campus.
At the Fitness Center, we have plenty of cardiovascular equipment, including stair steppers, treadmills, elliptical machines, bicycles, and rowers; strength training equipment and a variety of free weights; and a spacious exercise area for group classes.
