Being successful in college isn’t just a matter of performing well in the classroom. Sandburg students routinely balance the conflicting demands of family, work, and life events with the demands of college. These challenges can quickly become overwhelming. The counseling staff at Sandburg offers students confidential support and guidance from an approachable staff of trained professionals. In most cases, students get the help they need in one or two visits, but more time is available if needed. The counseling staff is also experienced with the process of referring students when help from an outside agency is needed. Sandburg counselors are available to discuss issues including anxiety, depression, sexual assault, domestic violence, drug and alcohol abuse, eating disorders, gender identity issues, and more. No matter the concern, the Sandburg counseling staff is there for you. To make an appointment with a counselor, call or stop by Student Services: Galesburg 309.341.5237, Carthage 217.357.3129.
