Right now, we are amid a global pandemic that is changing life as we know it. This is something unprecedented for the vast majority of the population, but especially for younger people. A group that may thrive off of always being social, going out, and having fun, is suddenly bound inside for safety reasons, without a clear end in sight.
College students are especially impacted: they’re navigating remote classrooms and an uncertain job market awaits them upon graduation.
Statistically speaking, more people are graduating high school and going to college than ever. At the same time, the percentage of minorities in the country is growing. However, these trends aren’t necessarily intertwining in the way we hoped. There are a lot of issues that are keeping minorities from getting access to the education they are looking for and even hampering their college experience when they are there. Let’s take a closer look at these issues and exactly what they entail.
For many college students, partying and having a good time is seen as part of the experience. While this can certainly be true, there are a variety of different sobering statisticsyou should keep in mind:
Roughly 1,825 students die each year in unintended alcohol-related accidents, with almost another 600,000 being seriously injured.
400,000 students report having unprotected sex while under the influence.
97,000 students report being a victim of alcohol-induced sexual assault or rape.
College is the place where young minds go to receive higher education in preparation for landing their dream jobs. However, multiple studies have been done which reveal that many people have an alternative motivation for going to college. As it turns out, 63 percent of female college students have stated they want to meet their future spouse while attending college.
So we put together a list to keep yourself, your stuff, and the people around you safe during the week-long rager. Here are the Top 4 things you need to know to have a safe Spring Break based on the biggest complaints of most college students.
