The SCWRC wants to thank you for visiting our webpage. The GSU Student Counseling & Wellness Resource Center staff would like to invite you to explore our webpage.  We acknowledge, leaving home can be challenging and even scary sometimes, we get it, it is a huge transition.  However, the Counseling Center would like to assist you in whatever needs you have during this time in your life; even though college can be an exciting time it can also cause stress and anxiety.  The requirements to complete certain tasks and the amount of homework a student may have, involvement in organizations, and the change of environment may be overwhelming. Many times, students may also be dealing with stress regarding relatives, friends, as well as getting to understand your new roommate, significant others, and learning to balance your financial responsibilities.
