Suicide among college & university students is an important issue not only because of the frequency of suicidal attempts/completions, but also because of the severe trauma often precipitated by suicide. Although there are numerous writings discussing suicide, less has been written concerning trends among college students. This article therefore summarizes the prominent literature on college student suicide, provides a critical review, identifies relevant themes & discusses future directions.
