College Students Are Lonelier Than Ever:
Let’s Fix That
If there’s one thing for sure, the pandemic has wreaked havoc on the mental health of college students. During these past few years, there have been limited opportunities for social engagement apart from online lives. But now is the time to change that.
Loneliness among college students skyrocketed over the course of the pandemic. According to recent research, 56.7% of college students have experienced moderate levels of loneliness, while 23.6% reported feeling severely lonely. In other words, three out of every four students have felt lonely.
The good news is, having social support can prevent loneliness and improve mental health. A great way to increase social support and get mental health back on track is to get involved in student activities.
Benefits of student activities:
- Improved well-being
- Social skills development
- Less loneliness
- Reduced anxiety and depression
- Improved academic achievement
- A sense of belonging
We all need opportunities to engage meaningfully with each other in person as well as virtually.
