Should I Take a Gap Year? The Student Perpective

Students are changing plans in droves. Enrollment for undergraduate students is down 4 percent while enrollment for first-year students is down by 16 percent. Hear directly from students who are taking the path less followed and what their non-traditional and gap year experiences have been like thus far. The conversation will be moderated by Josh Moody from U.S. News & World Report and will feature a first-year and junior student who decided to embark on their own journeys.
