New survey spotlights basic needs insecurities among US college students
Strongly associated with worry and fear, food and housing insecurity can lead college students down a distressing path.A lack of basic necessities like a safe place to sleep and regular meals can greatly impact a student’s grade success and overall well-being at college or university.To unravel the reality of college insecurities, The Hope Center for College, Community, and Justice conducted a new survey with 86,000-plus students across 123 two- and four-year US institutions.“Too many students leave college without credentials because life, logistics, and a lack of money got in the way. These #RealCollege students are the new majority, but they are often ignored,” the nonprofit action research centre comments.Investigating into #RealCollege students’ lives, the recent report suggests that “50% of two-year college students and 44% of four-year college students worry that their food would run out before they could afford to buy more.”
