Fighting Crisis with Communication Centers

Hayley Bales


This essay focuses on the struggles undergraduate students are now facing in the wake of the pandemic surge. College students, especially freshmen and sophomores, came into their college experiences underprepared for the rigor of college academics and the social dynamics they need to navigate to be successful. These struggles have hit a crisis point due to lapses in instruction while schools were shut down, leading to lower quality instruction and fewer social interactions for students. This crisis is reflected in both the academic and mental health realms.
