UNIVERSITY LIFE is full of new opportunities and expectations, people and experiences, academic demands and freedom. Although it is often an exhilarating time, it can be stressful and confusing as well. These new challenges are sometimes accompanied by feelings of sadness, anxiety, irritability or dissatisfaction. When these feelings linger, become overwhelming or begin to interfere with a person’s ability to function, counseling can be a good option. The Wake Forest University Counseling Center is here to help students understand these feelings. Together we can find improved ways of coping with and growing from these experiences.
