Drop in counseling hours: On Mondays 11:00 AM-6:00 PM, TAPP members can visit the Counseling Center front desk and ask to speak with the TAPP counselor (Rod Schilling) for drop in counseling. While educational plans require scheduled appointments, he will be happy to meet with you (schedule permitting) to answer your questions and provide counseling towards your teaching future! The Counseling Center is located in the new Student Services building.
