We're here to support our students with virtual and in-person health services, many invaluable resources and recruiting opportunities from the Career Center, and more.
The Cowell Center is here to support our students during these times of uncertainty, stress and loneliness. Student Health Services (SHS) and Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) are utilizing a virtual and an in-person model to meet the medical and mental health needs of the SCU student body. Outside of a critical need to meet in-person, as determined by one of the Center's practitioners, most services are offered virtually. Referrals for off campus therapists and other virtual resources are available on the Cowell Center website.
The Career Center recognizes that there are many unique challenges for students during this unprecedented time, and we are here to support you. We regularly update our robust set of tools and resources to support students in all aspects of internships, career preparation, campus recruitment opportunities, job search tools, and more.
We encourage you to visit our robust Career Center COVID 19 website for the latest information, resources, and service offerings.
