We discourage any student to communicate through email regarding personal problems. With the nature of email, we cannot guarantee your confidentiality, nor do we operate on a 24-hour basis, so we cannot guarantee that your email will be read and answered in a timely manner. We prefer and suggest that students make a face-to-face appointment with a counselor to discuss specific needs.
