This study looks at how college students’ levels of social integration in the campus community affects their feelings of stress and depression. The sample of undergraduate students (N = 378) completed a survey designed to measure various social aspects of college life. Four questions which demonstrated a relationship between social integration and depression were specifically used to obtain data for this study. However, this study found no significance relating social integration and stress. Further research would benefit from a more focused research question as well as a stratified sampling method.
