Dear UCI Students,

We hope you have a great summer break Anteaters! Remember to take the time to relax, unwind, and reconnect. The Counseling Center is excited for the break as we are busy preparing for the next academic year so that we can provide the best services possible for the campus community. We hope you have a great summer break and we look forward to meeting a lot of the incoming freshmen and transfer students this summer during the SPOP presentations and being a part of many great orientations across campus. 

Have a great summer! Zot Zot Zot!
