Recording: The State of the Student, Mar 4, 2019

The modern student is more likely to be working, a parent, female, diverse and over the age of 25 than 40 years ago. 66% say they cannot comfortably afford housing at their college, 37% have felt social pressure to spend more money than they can afford, 34% find it challenging or impossible to afford food, and 73% work while in school. This panel with current and recent students will shine a light on modern student life, pressures, hopes, and opportunities.
