Approximately 58,000 college students are homeless - AOL

While college is already a huge transition for young adults, some college students face an entirely different hardship -- homelessness. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) reported that there are 58,000 homeless students on campuses nationwide. FAFSA is the only reliable source for these statistics since colleges are not technically required to keep track of their homeless students. Barbara Duffield -- a policy director at the National Association for the Education of Homeless Children and Youth (NAEHCY) -- believes that the number of homeless college students has increased over the years.
