Health and Wellness

HERE TO HELP

O’More College of Design strives to create a community of designers, creators, innovators, thought-leaders, and entrepreneurs who are feeling-centered, community-minded, and goal-driven.  A community such as this is best formed when all members are healthy and happy.  Therefore, O’More makes it a priority to connect students to resources that will help them be successful.  Whether this involves helping a student find a doctor, a tutor, or even just a quiet study area, we care about and try to meet student needs.  Want to connect?  Contact the Office of Student Affairs.

 

Counselling & Tutoring

 

O’More College is committed to connecting students to professional counseling services, to help them cope with life transitions as well as serious emotional issues. Although O’More College does not currently offer on-campus counseling, the Office of Student Affairs will help students who require or request such treatment by aiding in obtaining services off campus.

 

For students who may require additional instruction in academic subjects, the Office of Student Affairs will work with Department Chairs to connect students to tutoring services. Tutoring may be available on-campus, or with off-campus specialty tutors.

For assistance in finding the best resource for your needs, please contact the Director of Student Affairs.
