Students come to the Counseling Center for a variety of reasons including: study/test taking concerns; stress/anxiety reduction; relationship concerns; depression; family concerns; eating disorders; sexual concerns; grief and loss; and other related concerns.

Counseling services are offered to currently enrolled BGSU students, and are provided at no charge.

On-going counseling is by appointment only. However, initial appointments/consultations typically occur during our walk-in hours.
