Student Testimonials

Hear from students on how the Counseling Center has helped them: 

The Counseling Center is friendly and welcoming. The process of going did not add to the anxiety I was feeling and I felt safe to express my fears and concerns. Also I felt that the counselor really listened and cared about me.

The counseling services here have changed my entire experience at Manhattan College.
