Campus Counseling Center

A college education offers many opportunities; it also comes with its shares of stress. You may be struggling because of an over-booked schedule, relationship issues, depression, anxiety, grief or loss, drug or alcohol abuse or another personal concern. It is easy to become distracted from your academic work with life’s concerns.

If you would like to speak with someone about your concerns, consider scheduling an appointment with Counseling Services on campus. Appointments can be scheduled by emailing wakcounseling@uwc.edu, calling 262-521-5480, or stopping by the Student Development Office in A115. Appointments are available Monday – Friday 8:30am-4:30pm. Summer break hours vary.
