Common Problems that College Students Face

Friday, November 18, 2011

It is being noticed that once high school students graduate and already step into College, they start to develop different kinds of problems and they have a hard time dealing with it. There is an increasing amount of attention being directed to the shift to an increased level of education being experienced by traditional-age and adult students. It is a movement that incorporates a great deal of stress and challenge. Even though there are those students who consider this shift of the level of education as a challenge to personal growth, other students, on the other hand, are overwhelmed by the changes that are happening and they even experience emotional maladjustment and depression when they can’t really handle the situation. 

Most of the common problems experienced in College start from the adjustment period they develop after graduating from high school. Education in High School is easier compared to the College level. It also depends on the school you are in on what kind of problems you are going to face. This is the real life, this is a new world from what you are used to, this is College! It’s a bigger and wider picture. You tend to face hectic schedules, challenging classes, and less time for gimmicks. There is no more time for sleepovers and hanging out in malls because once you are in College, most of your time will be focused on either studying or doing some paperworks provided by your professors. Sometimes, it’s really mind-aching when all you need to do is to study, study, and study. Grow up dude! This is already College so wake up!

Another common problem that a College student usually faces is being away from home for the first time and trying to get along with your roommates. In the first few days, you will be homesick and you will also feel depressed, especially when you are emotionally weak. Choosing the best major is also a common problem that a college student should consider. A year after, some college students realize that they are not happy anymore about their major and others shift from one to another more often.

There are still a lot of common problems to be mentioned that bothers a College student. These are just normal and they are experienced by many. You don’t have to be worried. All you need to do is to assure yourself that everything is under control.
