Counseling Center

Medaille's Counseling Center is staffed by professionally licensed and nationally certified counselors who are dedicated to providing confidential, quality clinical counseling services in a timely manner. Individual counseling, group counseling, and psychiatric consultation are among the services provided.

Counseling services are available to support veterans in making a successful transition from military to college life. In addition to addressing readjustment issues, veterans may utilize services to address traumatic loss, sexual trauma or combat-related experiences.  It is the mission of the Counseling Center to provide services that enhance the wellbeing and development of the whole person, and to reduce barriers to academic success. 

The Center is located at Medaille's Buffalo Campus in 117 Humboldt. Contact Jeannine Suk, director of counseling services, at (716) 880-2339.

TRiO and Student Support Services

Medaille College’s Student Support Services (SSS) Program is a federally-funded TRIO Program that provides services to help participants graduate from college.

  • SSS offers individual and group tutoring in most subject areas by peer and professional tutors.
  • Program participants can borrow a laptop (for up to a 3-day loan period) in order to work on assignments at home.
  • SSS offers the Student 2 Student Program with two main components:  – The Mentoring Program matches participants with mentors who act as resources, sounding boards, and allies to participants navigating the first-year experience.  – The Pay It Forward Community Stewardship Program allows participants to lead by example as they work together to address community issues.
  • The SSS computer lab houses information on New York State graduate programs. – SSS staff arrange for participants to visit area graduate schools and periodically accompany participants on these visits.  – SSS staff facilitate workshops on resume preparation and cover letter writing and offer tutorial sessions to prepare students for graduate and professional school entrance exams. 
  • SSS offers individualized workshops on topics such as study skills, test preparation, time management and stress management, as well as basic math  and English grammar.
  • To find out if you are eligible for the TRIO/SSS Program, call (716) 880-2214, or ask one of our VA Certifying Officers.
I'm grateful for the education I've received.

The instructors were knowledgeable and welcomed class discussions, with
respect for each student's contribution. I've learned how to be a more
effective leader. My capstone class gave insight on how to combine all
the education learned to operate a business. That's when I realized how
much I had sharpened my knowledge.
