University Counseling Center staff will continue to take walk-in appointments on the Mount Vernon Campus every day this week.

Students will be able to speak to counselors at Eckles Library from 4 to 7 p.m.

GW’s counseling office, which has about 20 employees in its K Street office, has bulked up its staff from other areas of the University, such as the medical school and the psychology department, as well as bringing in outside clinicians.

Counselors will also hold walk-in hours at the Multicultural Student Services Center from 2 to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, in addition to private meetings with student organizations across campus.

Dean of Student Affairs Peter Konwerski said the University will keep counselors on the Vern through mid-May. Officials will discuss lasting options for that campus this summer. Three students have died in West Hall since January.
