1 in 5 college students at Humboldt State University in California are homeless. It's among the worst-affected public colleges in a nationwide crisis. This is what they face every day.

Jasmine is a 23-year-old kinesiology major at Humboldt. She's been living homeless amongst her peers for a year and is open with friends about it to learn who is going through something similar. She has a full ride academic scholarship. She carries what would be her bedroom closet in a shoulder bag.

California's unaffordable housing crisis and the rising cost of college are putting students in a rough spot. An estimated 50,000 students in the California State University system are experiencing homelessness.

Nolan is a junior at Humboldt state studying geology but you'd never know that he's homeless. Nolan lives out of his car. According to Jasmine, 3 or 4 students can be seen sleeping in their cars in the parking lot overnight.

Chante Catt, off-campus housing liaison at HSU, blames the local student homelessness on the housing stock, Airbnb, and the policies and practices of the property managers in the area. Nolan and Jasmine have avoided taking out students loans to pay for housing because of the future financial burden.

Trump should focus on such scenario than building walls.. Wasting money on unnecessary walls... N military expenses..

College is a scam, and these kids have no experience in life to see it. Anything the government is involved with you should stay away from. Colleges have to keep their tuitions high so they can get government money.

Imagine putting yourself $100,000 in debt and sleeping in your car for 4 years just to get a $65,000 a year job

Looks like fun tho, just buy an old military truck and convert it into a camper, you can even get a small loan for it because you wont be paying rent so its win win

I appreciate this being brought to attention but it's not just college kids. Prices in general have skyrocketed in multiple cities. I live in denver for example and I have a couple friends who work full time jobs and still have to live out of their car or sleep on the streets if they can't afford a car. But the city cares more about the rich that visit then the locals. That much is obvious

I don't see a problem. The students are "Functional Homeless". and I don't see anything wrong with that. It is just a temporary situation and it is better to get a degree with no debt, so they can have a life later. Debt is a burden best avoided. The real problem is the government fueling outrageous tuition increases by providing unlimited money. Colleges waste every cent you give them. The 2000's saw the highest increases ever in tuition, because the government tried to fix something. Just like the increase in health care cost when the government messed with it. I used to be able to afford health insurance and a Health Savings Account before Obamacare. Education cost will decrease if the government set a limit on loans.
