Nutrition Counseling Services on Campus teaser image
The Student Counseling and Student Health Services have been widely advertised across campus and I know that a lot of you are utilizing the great services they offer. But do you know that we have nutrition counseling for graduate students here at A&M as well? If you are struggling with finding a time to eat, trying hard to balance your work load and healthy living while getting graduate school done, or just wanting to hear some professional suggestions on eating and wellness, you should really consider this one.
The Nutrition Services under Student Health Services is located in Beutel as well. Meghan Windham is our registered dietitian that works with students to make healthy eating and living plans. She can answer your food, diet, allergy related questions as well. For us students, the counseling services are provided at a discounted cost of $9-$56 per visit, depending on the time actually spent. An average cost of the initial visit is $36, and follow-up visits average less than $20 per visit. As long as you are currently enrolled at Texas A&M, you are eligible for these services.
Similar as other services at Beutel, you will need to make an appointment for the Nutrition Services by calling 979-458-8327 or emailing Or you can go online to make appointments at: A $25 no-show fee will be charged if you do not show up for the scheduled appointment and do not cancel beforehand.
If you suffer from eating disorders or concerns, there is an interdisciplinary treatment team (including mental health provider, physician, and registered dietitian) on campus that can help you. If you need an assessment or treatment for an eating disorder, you can call Student Counseling Service at 979-845-4427 to schedule an initial intake appointment.
Also, this is very important - if you know a friend who might have these kinds of questions or concerns, please refer them to contact the Nutrition Services or Student Counselling to get professional help. We are in this journey of graduate school together and we as Aggies always care about and support our fellow Aggies!
