About 326 Towson University students in 2017 were active military personnel, veterans, or affiliated persons (e.g., ROTC), and that number is expected to grow.
The Counseling Center promotes personal well-being and the academic success of students by providing comprehensive mental health services. We create an atmosphere where veterans and military students can examine and discuss freely and confidentially personal concerns of any type. Additionally, our therapists are aware of the unique challenges returning veterans may encounter and are ready to offer the support and services that will ease the transition to college life at Towson University.
Returning home from deployment or service to a college environment produces a unique set of challenges. Transitioning to academic life is a process that requires support from others, especially if an individual has concerns that start to interfere with academic success. Examples of transitional concerns that are commonly discussed in counseling include:
