Chapel


We encourage everyone on campus to participate in chapel at their own comfort level. We have limited the number that can attend in person in Rediger with the rotation groups, but, as always, it is the individual student’s decision how to participate in chapel responsibly. Viewing chapel online will be available to everyone with a valid Taylor login. Our hope is that this adjusted delivery can still offer a healthy rhythm of corporate worship with a consistent group each chapel day. (Updated December 1, 2020)

Given attendance restrictions, we currently encourage faculty and staff to participate virtually via the live stream. (Updated December 15, 2020)

Admissions will have ability to host campus visitors in a designated area in Rediger, but other visitors will be allowed on a very limited basis and cleared through the Campus Pastor’s office in conjunction with the administration. (Updated July 1, 2020)

Counseling Center


The Counseling Center encourages students to make appointments via email (counselingcenter@taylor.edu) or phone (765-998-5222) whenever possible. When this is not possible or in the case of a crisis, please come into the Counseling Center. (Updated December 17, 2020)

Please email the counseling center at counselingcenter@taylor.edu or call 765-998-5222 to make an appointment. (Updated December 17, 2020)

The Counseling Center offers face to face counseling. Sessions will be 45 minutes in length to allow for adequate cleaning of offices between sessions. (Updated December 17, 2020)

The Counseling Center offers telehealth sessions via a confidential Zoom platform for students who do not feel comfortable meeting face-to-face, who are immune compromised or who are in quarantine or isolation. (Updated December 17, 2020)

While masks are required when moving about the Counseling Center waiting rooms and hallways, once you are seated for your session, you are permitted to take your mask off at the discretion of you and your counselor. We recognize the therapeutic importance of non-verbal communication and expression of emotion in a counseling setting; therefore, during the in-person counseling session, masks are not required of you or your counselor.  We have arranged the offices so that student and counselor can maintain social distancing during the session. We ask that you please put your mask back on when leaving the office. (Updated December 17, 2020)

The Counseling Center is considering offering groups; however, at this time, all group counseling will be conducted via Zoom. (Updated December 17, 2020)
