We are looking forward to having you back on campus!

We are making some changes with our appointment process this fall. Our Peer Coaches will be here on the first class day to go over our new appointment policies and services. If you would like to schedule an appointment when you get back, please call our office as we are no longer offering online scheduling. Appointments with HP Coaches will be available starting Sept 5th. Check out below who to see for what:
