dc.description.abstractPrevious studies have indicated that college students with higher levels of perceived social support also reported lower levels of anxiety (Li et al., 2021; Zhou et al., 2013). Additionally, research supports that high levels of perceived workload was associated with an individual’s perception of anxiety (Kiziela et al., 2019 & Mboya et al., 2020). The purpose of this study was to evaluate the relationship between anxiety, workload, and social support in college students. The participants consisted of students from the General Psychology course at Carroll College. The participants were asked to complete the Participant Demographic Questionnaire (PDQ), the Anxiety Sensitivity Index-3 (ASI-3), the Subjective Workload Questionnaire (SWQ), and the Interpersonal Support Evaluation List (shortened version; ISEL-sv). The results of our study reflected that anxiety was a significant negative correlation with social support (r = -0.521, p=0.009). Additionally, we found a significant positive correlation between social support and the number of credits the participant was enrolled in. These results support previous research that when students feel socially supported they also feel less anxious (Li et al., 2021; Özmete & Pak, 2020; Zhou et al., 2013).
