Helping students heal, grow and reach their goals!
Students come to the Counseling Center for a variety of reasons. Some are looking for help in coping with the pressures associated with a challenging academic environment or adjustment to college life. Others want to learn how to be more effective in developing, negotiating, or maintaining relationships with others. Counseling can be beneficial for students who are feeling depressed or anxious, as well as those who want to examine their beliefs or explore their current life situation.
The Counseling Center offers students the opportunity to look at themselves and their environment and to change the way they think, feel, and behave so that they can make the most of their time at EOU.
Our Counseling Center services are available to students who have been assessed the Health Service Fee. Some students who have not automatically been assessed the Health Service Fee may “opt in.” Please talk with the Student Health and Counseling Center front desk for more information.
Counseling Center services available to students include:
Training and education workshops
All information shared by clients is confidential, with few exceptions that you can speak with your counselor about.

- Tuesday and Thursday: 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM
A counselor will be available to help you during these times. You can let Counseling Center staff know if drop-in times do not work with your schedule by calling 541-962-3524.
