This research project began just as I was realizing my own struggle with social anxiety. I learned through both my own experience and the experience of friends that college is a very difficult place for students with anxiety. Because of this, I was curious about what is being done at Marquette University to make the college experience more comfortable for students with anxiety, and my paper is the culmination of a semester’s worth of research on the subject. Throughout it all, I learned how easily anxiety can disrupt a college student’s life, altering both their educational and social experiences. The seriousness of the issue led me to wonder what options are available at Marquette to help these students and whether more resources could be offered.
