Counseling and Psychological Services
Counseling and Psychological Services would like to extend our congratulations to the graduating class of 2017! Congratulations on completing this chapter in your life. Please remember that the story continues. Continue taking care of yourself and others by seeking positive support, taking time for self-care, and being mindful of your overall well-being.
At Counseling and Psychological Services, we understand that as the semester comes to an end, stress levels may increase. Our team of personal and educational counselors are here to provide support through various services, such as individual sessions, workshops, and groups. Some helpful tips during finals are to use a planner; prioritize tasks, assignments, and exams; and to study in chunks of time versus all at once. Finally, remember to take breaks and get a good night sleep the evening before an exam. We believe in you!
For more academic tools and tips, our educational counselors can assist you. We recently expanded our educational counseling services through the addition of Ms. Scheanelle Green. Ms. Green has a Masters of Arts degree in Counseling from St. Mary's College in Moraga and has several years of experience at Los Positas College in Livermore.
Counseling and Psychological Services is located in the Student Wellness Center on the third floor. Please visit us at www.sjsu.edu/counseling for more information or call (408) 924-5910.

Student hunger is a real concern on college campuses today, and our campus offers a variety of resources from donation-based food shelves to a monthly Just In Time (JIT) mobile food pantry where eligible students can walk away with bags filled with free groceries. In partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank over 2,000 unique students have come to the JIT program since its first event in October.
Monday, May 8 from 10 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. in the Events Center is our next JIT event for students who self-identify as in need of additional food resources and are making less than $23,540/annually. Please bring your Tower ID and multiple reusable bags.
Student and employee volunteers are always needed too; sign-up to help at https://goo.gl/eSUQMe. Even if you may not be food insecure your knowledge of this campus resource could help a peer.
If you are interested in learning more about campus food resources, visit the Student Hunger Committee’s website at sjsu.edu/food or sjsu.edu/sjsucares to reach out to a staff member if you are experiencing an unforeseen economic crisis.
