“As the YSU community and the entire country works to address the COVID-19 pandemic and follow CDC guidelines, it can be challenging to navigate the YSU experience. Feelings of fear, anxiety and uncertainty may arise and are normal. As Student Counseling Services prepares for the upcoming semester, we are asking for feedback from students. This feedback will be used to assist in planning of COVID Relief funding provided for mental health support at the University.” - Student Counseling Services
