How Has COVID-19 Affected College?

School systems and especially colleges and universities have been hit hard by the outbreak of COVID-19 as millions of students have been sent home. COVID-19 has brought new challenges to both the institutions themselves and the students that attend them. Problems with government and state funding can cause major issues when trying to keep a college functioning.

Congress, to try to help universities stay afloat during the COVID-19 pandemic, set aside nearly $350 million of COVID-19 relief money to give to colleges with ‘significant unmet needs’. But this money did not go very far – only 20 institutions received any money from this and only benefited less than 3,000 students. 

No physical classes for students means that students can lose the nuances from in-person interactions and miss out on ‘normal’ activities. Graduating in a time of a down economy can also leave long-term consequences for when these graduates go to try find a job.
