Erb Memorial Union (EMU), Duck Nest Wellness Center (Room 041)

Sign-up or drop-by to have an in-person chat with one of our Peer Wellness Advocates. If you are struggling with homesickness, trying to make friends, having a problem they'd like to talk through, or simply wanting to talk with an understanding person then this is the opportunity for you. This isn't counseling, but rather a space to talk with a fellow student and someone who understands what you are going through.
