College Freshmen Socialize Less, Feel Depressed More
from U.S. News & World Report
College freshmen are spending less time socializing with friends and partying, and more time interacting through online social networks and studying. Perhaps as a result, students' emotional health has dropped to an all-time low, according to a survey by the University of California-Los Angeles. "When we look at the fact that students are spending more time studying and less time socializing, they're not having a way to release some of that stress," says Kevin Eagan, an assistant professor in residence at UCLA and lead author of a report on the survey's findings. "Those two factors combined may be contributing to added levels of feeling overwhelmed or feeling depressed as they come into college."
