Overview

Stress levels of African American college students attending Historically Black and
Predominantly White Institutions were compared during this research. The GPAs of the students were correlated with their stress levels. Racism and social support were explored as factors contributing to stress. Results indicated that African American students attending the Predominantly White institution had higher stress than African American students attending the Historically Black institution and White students attending the
Predominantly White institution. The results also indicated that GPA and stress were negatively correlated; as stress levels decreased, GPA
increased. A negative correlation was found to be significant with social support and stress; as stress increased, social support decreased.
