Wellness & Counseling


We are fortunate to have Shan Reeves, from Rutgers CAPS (Counseling, ADAP, and Psychiatric Services), working directly with the Honors College to help you address challenges and emotions that you may be feeling throughout the year. Counseling sessions are private, free, and confidential.

All Honors College students can talk with Shan during Let's Tele Talk Hours via Zoom on:
  • Mondays, 2:00–4:00pm (through June 28th)
  • Fridays, 10:00am–12:00pm (through June 25th)
  • HC students can also schedule a 30-minute appointment with Shan or others by calling CAPS at 848-932-7884. Students can select Option 2 and they will be directed to an administrative assistant who will schedule appointments with Shan directly.
  • CAPS also provides self help tools through the main Student Health website.
  • To share a concern about a fellow student's well-being that is not urgent, you may refer to the Do Something! webpage.
  • If a situation is urgent, please call 911.
