dc.description.abstractA study done on graduate and undergraduate students in September of 2020 discovered that 71.26% suffered from increased stress and anxiety during the COVID-19 pandemic (Wang et al.). They also found that less than half of the participants in the study felt able to cope effectively with chronic or newfound stress. Wanting to see how Carroll compared to this percentage, student researchers conducted interviews, focus groups, environmental scans, and outlet density scans in order to gather results. Student researchers found that Carroll students face similar levels of increased stress due to COVID and isolation conditions. Carroll students reported worsening mental health conditions, particularly when in isolation. Interview and focus group participants described being isolated in empty apartments that didn’t include basic necessities needed for student life. There were reports of failed meal delivery, as well as students being forgotten and left in hotels. The information gathered from this project will be used to educate students on mental health services to help them address COVID related stressors. This information will also be used to inform Carroll on the needs of their students to ensure that students get what they need while in isolation.en_US
