The social, emotional, and academic concerns that occur occasionally in everyone’s life can generate challenges, conflicts and questions. Such concerns can make it difficult for a person to function in a satisfying and successful manner. Common student concerns presented in counseling include:
Feelings of Inadequacy
Problems Adjusting to a Military College
Alcohol and Substance Abuse
Bereavement and Grief
Anger and Irritability
The Citadel Counseling Center provides an atmosphere where personal concerns of any type can be examined and discussed freely and confidentially. Such an environment increases the likelihood that problems and conflicts will be resolved.
Making decisions about a major and/or career requires that students understand themselves. Counselors can help with that decision-making process. Through our office, students can meet with a counselor to better understand their interests, skills, and abilities. Students are also encouraged to visit The Citadel Career Center at 573 Huger Street for comprehensive career/employment planning and preparation assistance; guidance on academic portfolio and resume construction and use; on-campus interviewing and career fair schedules; development of interviewing skills and employment search strategies; occupation, firm and industry research; graduate program research; and assistance in using The Citadel Career Volunteer mentors. The Citadel Career Center may be contacted at 843-953-1617.
Academic Effectiveness Counseling
Many students experience some type of difficulty in their academic work. This may involve problems in concentration or motivation, test anxiety, or other difficulties. Through professional counseling, students can understand some of the reasons for their difficulties and learn to overcome them.

The Student Success Center offers individual and group academic assistance to undergraduate students, graduate students, and students with disabilities. Academic assistance includes academic advising, learning strategies, tutoring, study skills, and organizational skills. The Student Success Center may be contacted at 843-953-5305.
