Fifty-Fifty: A Peer Counseling Service
The Hartwick College counseling center offers students who may feel more comfortable talking with a fellow student the option to meet with a trained peer.
50-50 members are extensively trained and will “meet you halfway” (50-50) by offering you information and support in a safe, non-judgmental atmosphere.
