Wednesday, April 3, 2019

Cumberland County College recently hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the official opening of the campus Wellness Center, located in the Academic Building. The facility provides students with a dedicated space to receive support, get connected with campus or community resources, and grow toward their academic and personal goals.

“Cumberland County College is being proactive in establishing this essential facility for our students in need,” said interim president Dr. Shelly Schneider. “It will be successful because its staff members truly care about our students.”

The Wellness Center offers free services to all current full- and part-time Cumberland County College students, including short-term solution focused counseling, student-specific strategy counseling, assessment and referral services, wellness education workshops, and staff and faculty consultations.

Students in need are urged to call the Wellness Warm Line at 856-691-8600, ext. 1258 between 8:30 a.m. and 10 p.m.
