Announcements

Confidants

Welcome to university and a new chapter in your life. However exciting this new chapter may be, it does not always come easy. There are many factors that may influence your life at university, and we want you to know that you don’t have to go through everything alone. If you ever need anything from a little rant to talking about a serious issue, we, as confidants, are here for you. Everything you tell us is confidential unless requested otherwise by you. Additionally, we are here to listen and will not act on anything unless requested by you. You can contact one of us directly or email us at confidant@storm.vu
