How to Schedule an Appointment
As an undergraduate or graduate student, counseling services are including in your tuition and fees. There is no additional cost to you. Stop by the Counseling Center or contact the Interim Counseling Center Director, Thomas DeGeorge, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 610.527.0200 x2416.
Although counseling sessions are usually by appointment only, we may be able to accommodate walk-in appointments if an appropriate counselor is available.
Counseling Center Mission
Rosemont College Counseling Center seeks to support students in the achievement of their educational goals by helping them resolve personal issues that affect their success.
The Counseling Center strives to enhance student growth in self-knowledge and self-efficacy, critical thinking, personal problem-solving, emotional coping strategies, interpersonal skills, the creation of meaningful and healthy relationships, effective communication and overall emotional and social well-being.
In the event of an emergency and the Counseling Center is closed, contact Public Safety at xt. 2555 or go to the Bryn Mawr Hospital Emergency Room.
Talking things through can often lead to new perspectives or options for action. Individual counseling provides an opportunity to talk with a counselor in a one-on-one setting. Sessions typically last 45 minutes and are scheduled around your availability and the hours the Counseling Center is open.
When there's interest and support, psychoeducational groups may be formed and devoted to topics such as stress, grief, relationships, or dealing with body image issues. If you're interested in participating in a group, please contact the Counseling Center.
