A comprehensive review of the literature was completed to investigate college student-athletes' perceptions regarding the long-term effects of concussions. Based on the findings, it was determined that there is a need for more education among student-athletes regarding this topic. This was a quantitative, cross-sectional, nonexperimental study with a descriptive design. A survey with 7 demographic and 17 Likert-type statements was collected from 100 student-athletes in a Midwestern college at their specified team practice sites for data collection.
