The Counseling Center at FSU welcomes our veteran students. We encourage you to come here with any concern and we are committed to helping you have a successful university experience.

  • While many veterans return from deployment without challenges related to combat, every combat veteran takes home some degree of combat stress. Around 20% of combat veterans return home with some kind of post traumatic stress. 
  • Sleep difficulties, frustration, and being misunderstood by civilians are common experiences for many combat veterans returning home.
  • Combat veterans who return home after deployment with adjustment challenges may be having normal reactions to an abnormal experience (war).
  • Counseling can be helpful to you by being action oriented, focused on solutions, and time limited.

Visit the Student Veterans of America website, a student veterans association for vets returning to college and university.
