Social anxiety may create significant academic challenges for students. This is alarming because approximately 12.1% of undergraduate students in the United States meet criteria for a social anxiety disorder. This study utilizes a self-report survey and examines social anxiety levels in NKU undergraduate students and the impact this can have on academic performance. This study expects to find that students with high social anxiety will perform lower academically than peers with low social anxiety. The results will provide awareness of mental health issues and additional resources to promote academic success.
