In 2010, Counseling & Psychological Services opened a biofeedback clinic to reduce students' academic stress. Students who experience anxiety and other physiological symptoms are encouraged to try this easily accessible form of treatment. The egg-shaped Alpha Chamber promotes relaxation by increasing alpha waves in the brain.
