The challenges of choosing the right career, achieving or maintaining one's independence, relating successfully to others, and leading a happy and successful life converge during a student's college years. College life adds the concerns of exams, term papers, quizzes, and class reports. Even students who are prepared to do their best in college may experience problems. The Counseling and Student Development Center (CSDC) provides the following services to assist students.

Career Counseling

Students should choose their majors before they progress very far in their academic programs. Most students expect their academic studies to lead to specific careers upon graduation. Career counseling explores strengths and limitations, interests and values, personality and skills, and applies this understanding to developing academic and occupational plans. (See also “Career Development and Student Employment.”)

Personal Counseling

Some people occasionally, even regularly, feel worried, unhappy, and depressed. Lack of confidence, fear, low self-esteem, inability to get along with others, loneliness, not being able to cope with people and situations, and similar problems can be discussed with one of CSDC's professional counselors. All matters discussed in counseling are confidential and will not affect academic standing.

Psychiatric Consultation

People who find themselves seriously depressed, unable to control their behavior, or doing things they don't understand may want and need psychiatric consultations. A talk with a counselor is recommended to determine whether psychiatric consultation is required.

Testing

Testing is frequently used as part of counseling to help students understand themselves better and plan their careers. Counselors will discuss which tests to take and interpret them after they are scored. In addition, the Testing Office now administers the computer-based GRE, TOEFL, and PRAXIS exams. An appointment to schedule an exam can be made over the phone with a major credit card by calling (808) 956-3454, or with a check at the Testing Office, Queen Lili'uokalani Center for Student Services Room 307. Information about registration for paper-based admissions or certification exams, including SAT, ACT, LSAT, MCAT, and PRAXIS also is available at this office.

Outreach

Workshops and seminars to promote personal development and academic success are offered throughout the year. Stress management, assertiveness, improving self-esteem, career and life planning, and coping with difficult people are just a few of the topics that are available. Sessions to address specific needs can be developed and conducted at the request of faculty or a group of students.

Consultation

CSDC provides consultation services for individual students, faculty, and groups that may need help in solving organizational problems, overcoming interpersonal difficulties, and planning staff development programs.
