NVC Can Help Students with Daily Struggles

Many people in college face numerous different struggles; from mental issues to financial problems it seems that life can get the better of you. Northwest Vista knows and understands this, and because of this provides numerous solutions to help students and their families. Today I will discuss some of the major issues college students face and ways that Vista can help!

Mental Health Struggles

Mental health is a very serious and growing issue; currently about 60% of college students are experiencing a mental health issue, which has grown from 50% in 2013. It is not a new issue, but one that can be minimized through the NVC Advocacy & Resource Center’s services such as skills coaching, short-term individual counseling, substance abuse counseling, and crisis intervention. These services can help decrease, or in the very least make the stress that you incur more bearable. The center also offers help outside of themselves and can make referrals and appointments.

Food on Campus

The school offers many different options and solutions to help feed students that may be struggling. In addition to the free GrabNGo at the Advocacy Center at Pecan Hall, the Center also allows student to shop (at no cost) in its food pantry, called The Store (by appointment).

Students can also purchase food at the Wildcat Cafe at the library and at the Wildcat Den (another cafe) at Huisache Hall. There’s also food trucks on campus and their menus can be found here, along with where the microwaves are located on campus.

NVC also offers technology help for your classes if you do not own any, such as checking out laptops. To learn more, go here
