Homeless, Hungry, And Enrolled In College
College is expensive, and housing is tight in much of the country. So it should not be much of a surprise to learn that some students are technically homeless while they go to college.
A study released earlier this year showed that across the California State University system, more than 10% of students were at risk of homelessness at some point in the academic year, and another 41% experienced food insecurity.
Jennifer Maguire at Humboldt State and Rashida Crutchfield at Long Beach State joined forces for the study. They join us to lay out some of the facts. They are joined by Chant'e Catt, a Humboldt State student who advocates for solutions to the issues.
