    Counseling Students Association

    All graduate students enrolled in the Master's in Clinical Mental Health Counseling program at Monmouth University are members of the Counseling Students Association (CSA). Each semester, the CSA sponsors events such as a semi-annual Labyrinth Walk, trips to relevant shows and workshops in New York, guest speakers on campus, an annual Meet & Greet to welcome our incoming counseling students, and more.

    The CSA is a dynamic organization that is run by and for all our department's graduate counseling students.
