Help for Students Having Personal or Academic Concerns

Many college students seek assistance when they are struggling academically or personally. The Help-A-Cane program allows you or the student you care about to connect with available resources and support. Please complete the appropriate form below to inform the college of the need for assistance.

Help for students who are experiencing:

  • Academic Concerns - uncharacteristic or sudden changes in grades, attendance, or class participation
  • Behavioral and Mental Health Concerns - uncharacteristic, disturbing, or disruptive behavior; discussion of self-harm or violence
  • Personal Concerns - homesickness, adjusting to college, personal identity
  • Family or Relationship Concerns - roommate conflicts, friends, dating relationships, any relationship concerns affecting success at LC
  • Financial Concern - college accounts, unexpected financial emergency, personal and family finances

Request Assistance

You must have a Louisburg College email address to submit this form. If you are concerned about a student but do not have an LC email or have general questions about the Help-A-Cane program, please contact Toni Cochis, Assistant Dean of Students, 108 Davis Hall.  Once a person submits a referral, a Student Life team member will reach out to the student within two business days to discuss the concern and the best way to support them.

Additional Helping Resources

For concerns needing an immediate response, such as a student mentioning suicide or violence towards others, one should contact the Joel Porter Counseling Center, the Office of Student Life, or Campus Safety. The college keeps information submitted private but not always confidential, as appropriate staff may need specific details. If you wish to speak with someone confidentially, the college's counselor, chaplain, and Health Clinic staff are available.
