Welcome to the David B. Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics at Syracuse University
The Office of Student Services strives to provide a caring, comfortable and confidential environment where students can discuss academic, social and/or emotional concerns. In addition, we provide advising for undeclared students and track all requirements for degree completion.
General Support Services
Our department uses a strength-based advising and counseling approach when working with students so we listen to your concerns, identify your strengths and challenges and work towards positive solutions. We like to take a proactive (rather than reactive) approach to situations, both academic and personal, so we prefer to see students when their concerns first arise so we can work on solutions before a crisis occurs or things are “too far gone” to make an impact in the semester.
Typical issues that students talk to us about are:
- Concerns with their classes/grades
- Time management (fitting everything in and developing a balanced schedule for school and play)
- Study and learning strategies
- Learning disabilities (whether already diagnosed or suspected)
- Relationship issues (roommates, friendships, romantic and parental)
- Depression and anxiety
- Drug and Alcohol Issues
- Sexual and Gender Orientation issues
- Getting connected and making friends on campus
- Lifestyle concerns (sleeping, eating, developing routines, etc.)
- Health issues (personal and/or family)
We also collaborate with many other resources on campus and may connect you to them if it would be helpful for your particular concerns (see Campus Resources
