Keim cited in Press Herald story about student challenges during the pandemic

The Portland Press Herald interviewed Karen Keim, director of the Maine Educational Opportunity Center and Maine Educational Talent Search at the University of Maine, about the economic impact of the pandemic on college students across the state. “College students, particularly adults, are really struggling,” said Keim, adding that a lot of students are choosing to postpone college. “The people that are sticking with it are incredibly resilient. They are being creative with how they’re problem-solving and they’re reaching out for assistance. The campuses are being really supportive of their students and doing innovative things to keep people safe and on campus.”
