Counseling Services

Students transitioning to the new experience of college life often face many unexpected challenges. For many, it's the first time they're living away from family and close friends and having to develop new friendships. Trying to find a balance with studies, activities, and social life can also be difficult. In order to assist students in facing some of these changes, North Greenville University provides confidential, personal counseling at no cost to students.


Ms. Sue Suomi, MA, has worked with individuals dealing with life transitions, loss and grief, anxiety, depression and relationships. She received her degree in counseling from Western Seminary in Portland, OR, and is a National Certified Counselor (NCC). She is on campus Monday through Thursday from 8:30 am to 5 pm, and Friday from 8:30 am to noon. You can contact Sue by calling her at extension 2094, or stopping by her office on the Campus Ministries hall of Tingle Student Center. 

Sue hopes you'll stop by her offices if you have any concerns you'd like to talk about, or just to say "hey." She looks forward to meeting you.
