The purpose of the Counseling Center, located in LoGrasso Hall, is to help students grow as persons emotionally, socially, and academically. Professional counselors work individually or in groups to help students understand themselves better, resolve problems, and deal with important decisions. Counselors do not tell students what to do, but emphasize the ultimate responsibility of each person to conduct his/her life.
All SUNY Fredonia students may use the center without charge. Appointments can be made in person or by telephoning (716) 673-3424. Counseling is strictly confidential and no information is released to anyone without the student's written consent.
The Career Development Office is located on the second floor of Gregory Hall and can help you identify an academic major, explore career possibilities, plan related experiences, prepare for a job search, and identify graduate and professional schools and programs.
Using the computer program DISCOVER, you can identify career possibilities and get information about occupations, including specific physical requirements. The career resources (books, magazines, videotapes, brochures) include career descriptions, personal skills and academic backgrounds required, salary ranges and a host of other information to assist you in your career planning. The resources also include employer directories, job search books and handouts (resumes, cover letters, search strategies, interviewing), graduate school directories and employer information. One of their shelves for special populations contains publications of particular interest for students with disabilities. They include: Americans With Disabilities Handbook; Job Strategies For People With Disabilities, a publication that includes sections on the ADA, career decision making and job search, and "Careers and the disAbled: The Career Magazine For People With Disabilities", published three times a year; Employment Guide For College Students With Disabilities; and Job-Hunting Tips For The So-Called Handicapped Or People Who Have Disabilities.
