Friends and Family. It's a Trine thing.


The Student Counseling Services office is located in the Student Services office of the Rick L. & Vicki L. James University Center. Office hours are 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Counseling services hours vary, include some evenings, and are available by appointment.

It is the intent of Trine's counseling services to facilitate learning about emotional and psychological development which can make a positive impact on academics, decision-making, and student retention. The counselor works to help students resolve problems  that may impede personal, social, and academic functioning while emphasizing prevention, development, adjustment and overall wellness.

Students come to counseling for several different reasons including depression, anxiety, and relationship difficulties. In addition, it is quite common for students to experience overwhelming feelings of loneliness, isolation, disappointing academic results, and career indecision. Counseling services offers a healthy way to handle these challenges and stressors. The counselor will determine what services are the most appropriate for the student and if it is decided that the student's needs can be best met elsewhere, than a referral will be provided.

If you or someone you know would benefit from counseling services contact Megan Cook ( @ 260.665.4172 or Tom Cantrell ( @ 260.665.4183 in the Office of Student Services, to schedule an appointment.
