Analyzing data from the sixth annual #RealCollege Survey, conducted at 202 colleges and universities in 42 states in the fall 2020, Hope Center researchers compared students based on whether or not they reported having had COVID. Almost 7 percent of students said that they had contracted the virus, a likely underestimate. COVID-19’s impact on higher education has been examined widely as academic disruptions, social isolation, and financial instability threaten students’ dreams of college attainment. Now, a new study conducted by The Hope Center for College, Community, and Justice of more than 100,000 undergraduates across the nation reveals the negative implications of the COVID-19 virus on students’ health and well-being.
