Abstract

The purpose of this study is to examine the impact of Covid-19 on students’ mental health, academic performance, and sense of social isolation. Given the ongoing status of the Covid-19 pandemic, there is a lack of studies concerning the effects of the sense of isolation resulting from strict regulations put in place to minimize the spread of the virus in college students and its consequent impact on their mental health and academic performance. However, previous studies have shown a correlation between sense of isolation, mental health, and academic performance. This study elaborates on previous research and serve to establish a link between sense of social isolation, mental health and academic performance for current Marshall University students and understand how heavily the COVID-19 pandemic impacted students’ lives.
