What I Missed | Barnard

Many people regret that they didn’t have enough fun in college, writes essayist Halley Bondy Barnard College’06. Not her. She drank her way through. “I regret that I wasn’t present. I regret that I didn’t see that Barnard was giving me a thousand hugs. I regret that I fought off every one of them.”

Students Speak: Why I Chose My College — Daytripper University

Why I Choose a Liberal Arts School...Many liberal arts universities offer you the opportunity to pursue an open curriculum, which allows you to take classes that you are passionate about, instead of those that fulfill a “core curriculum” designated by the university. When I heard that this meant no more math class, I was intrigued! I was drawn in even further by the idea that no class would, theoretically, be a drag. Instead, I could select courses that align with my strengths and passions, offering opportunities to pursue my interests.

Screen Time Up as Reading Scores Drop. Is There a Link?

Studies have found higher screen time linked to worse sleep habits and eyesight, poorer attention, and lower academic progress-but in general, these studies have looked at screen exposure more broadly, rather than reading habits in particular.

The yearslong slide in reading scores on the National Assessment of Educational Progress comes as students are spending more time in and out of class on digital devices.

The mental health crisis among America's youth is real – and staggering

The first signs of a problem started to emerge around 2014: More young people said they felt overwhelmed and depressed. College counseling centers reported sharp increases in the number of students seeking treatment for mental health issues.

Some have called reports overblown, with others going so far as to call it a myth. But the data that continues to emerge tell a different story.
