Loneliness has become a common problem for many college students. Family life specialists are in a unique position to offer assistance to lonely students who otherwise may not be able to change their dysfunctional attitudes, dispositions, or patterns, and achieve satisfying lifestyles and interpersonal relationships. The purpose of this article is to review the empirical research concerning loneliness among college students and to discuss implications for intervention in educational and remedial settings.
