Homeless College Students

This article describes the challenges faced by homeless college students; the challenges are wide-spread, as we all know that not having financial resources will impact the social, emotional, vocational, (etc., etc.) areas of life. Because most students will not volunteer this information, as the article suggests and based on my experience in Residence Life, it is imperative that we keep a critical eye and ear to this issue on our campus. While we ask all students to leave during breaks, there are some students who cannot leave because they have nowhere to go. If we want our students to succeed (and we do!), we must be mindful of their circumstances and be flexible when the situation calls for it.
