My research question asks the following: Is there a correlation between grade point average (GPA) and time spent using social media? Current research shows that there is positive correlation between social media use and academic performance. The results will identify if there is a positive correlation on a laptop university campus. This research can be beneficial to most current college students or future college students as well as parents who will utilize the results. The findings of this study can help college students understand social media’s influence on their college GPAs. This study is highly important as it could affect future college students if social media has a negative impact on academic performance. The survey has been distributed campus-wide with currently 190 student responses. My first hypothesis is that students who use social media for academic purposes there will have a positive correlation between frequent use of social media with higher college student GPA. My second hypothesis is that non-academic use of social media will positively correlate with lower college student GPAs. There has not been a current study related to college student GPA and social media.
