Counseling

Counseling sessions are a very important part of the services offered in TRIO/SSS. Counseling discussions are held individually and occasionally in a group setting. Many TRIO/SSS students are experiencing college life for the first time and these sessions prove to be extremely beneficial to students. Special efforts to encourage, inspire, and strengthen student’s academic performance is a high priority for the TRIO/SSS staff. To schedule a session with a TRIO/SSS staff member, email us directly, or contact the TRIO/SSS office at 828.726.2726 (Caldwell campus) or 828.297.2185 (Watauga campus).
