dc.description.abstractThe aim of the current study is to view cyber-bullying and its impact on self-esteem, optimism and feelings of inadequacy levels on college students. A mixed design was used in the study; a correlative design to look at the relationship that cyber-bullying had on levels of self-esteem, inadequacy and optimism while a quasi-research design was used to look at the difference in gender and cyber-bullying through websites. Self-administered Questionnaires were distributed to 105 DBS Undergraduates. Analysis found that cyber-bullying had a significantly negative impact on all the examined variables. No significant gender differences were found. Results showed, although college cyber-bullying may not be as prevalent as secondary school, it does occur and impacts greatly on the student.
