A Resourceful Space
The Women's Center is here to advocate for the best educational and working environment for all genders at the university. We accomplish this by fostering your personal growth and working toward societal change and community understanding. Our office provides a variety of resources such as work, lounge, and meeting spaces, a lactation room and toys for children, a lending library with over 2,000 volumes, and computer and printing capabilities. We seek the advancement of women and people of all genders through activism, leadership, and empowerment.
Scholarships and Financial Aid
There are a variety of resources available to help support you financially through your college experience. If you are looking to apply for scholarships or have questions about what kinds of financial aid you can receive, please explore these resources.
We want you to have a truly exceptional college experience. In order to do that, we have resources to help you through whatever types of challenges you might face. As a part of our community, you are important and we want you to have the support that is best for you.
As Ducks, it is important that we do our best to have healthy relationships. That can mean knowing how to ask and give consent or be there to support a friend. Our resources can help you get connected with information and services to build healthy relationships and feel safe around campus.
Child Care and Lactation Stations On Campus
If you are a parent as well as a student, we have resources to help you. You may be eligible to receive financial support for child care, and our work-life resources might be beneficial to you. There are also a number of lactation stations around campus for your convenience.
Meet with Counseling Services Carolyn Meiller, who specializes in working with LGBTQ students, for Let’s Talk on Tuesdays 10AM-12PM.
Let’s Talk is a service that provides easy access to free, informal, and confidential one-on-one consultation with a Counseling Services staff member. See our website for six additional Let’s Talk days/times offered throughout the week.
Let’s Talk is especially helpful for students who:
Have a specific concern and would like to consult with someone about it.
Would like on-the-spot consultation rather than ongoing counseling.
Would like to consult with a CS staff member about what actual therapy looks like.
Would like to meet with one of our CS identity-based specialists.
Have a concern about a friend or family member and would like some ideas about what to do.
How does Let’s (Tele)Talk work?
While typically offered in various campus locations, Let’s (Tele)Talk will be offered via Zoom. As a drop-in service, there is no need to schedule an appointment and no paperwork to be completed. Students are seen individually on a first-come, first-served basis at the times listed below. There may be a wait in the Zoom waiting room if the Let’s (Tele)Talk staff member is meeting with another student. Please wait and we will be with you as soon as we can. Let’s Talk appointments are brief (usually between 15-30 minutes) and are meant to be used on an as-needed basis.

When you’re a busy student with children, finding time for self-care can feel impossible. It can also seem hard to justify taking time to yourself when you are responsible for the care of others – there is always something else to do! This can lead to feelings of guilt, resentment, and even burnout.
In this virtual workshop, students with children will be encouraged to reimagine their relationship with self-care – realistically and compassionately. What is self-care, anyway? Why is it important, and how do I know if I need to change my self-care strategy? Can taking care of myself really lead to a better experience for the kids I care for?
If you are a student who cares for children, please RSVP for this event, and we'll send you the zoom link. The first 30 students who RSVP will receive a complimentary self-care box after the workshop.
