Student Development Center
Students should consider stopping by the Student Development Center when facing educational, career, and personal decisions. Usually appointments are not necessary, but will assure a specific time for a conference. Center hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Please call 509.527.4262 or 509.524-4791 for an appointment.

Making referrals to other agencies or professional sources when necessary.
Coordinating group activities to accomplish certain goals such as life planning, developing communication skills, increasing human potential, and wellness issues.
