Conversation Hour

Join Counseling Service in collaboration with other offices of the Vassar community to engage in monthly conversations on specific or general topics. This is a space where students can, share, empower, and support each other. If interested please contact the respective offices below for more information. 

Please note: These are not counseling or therapy groups. As a support space, it provides an opportunity for participants to support each other as peers by sharing personal experiences and ideas. When clinical needs arise, participants might be referred to VCCS or other resources for further support.

**All conversation hours will be offered on a secure video platform, for the purpose of maintaining the health and safety of our students and counselors**
