  • Ga Tech Counseling, Let’s Talk: “This service is open to all Georgia Tech undergraduate and graduate students. It is a valuable and appropriate service for students who may be unsure about formal counseling, have a specific problem and would like someone with whom to talk it through, have a concern about a friend and want some thoughts about what to do, or students who are not interested in ongoing counseling but would like the perspective of a counselor.”
