College has changed my home life greatly. The biggest stressors I have faced since coming to college are hand in hand with those in my general life. I am not stressed by loneliness, homesickness, or studying. I am stressed about the way my school work will translate into grades, and grades into scholarships, and scholarships into money, and money into being able to afford to live. These major stressors are very difficult to cope
The price of college is a huge problem for students everywhere because a college degree has become a necessity for higher paying jobs. The rising cost of college started in 1927 when more and more people started going to college to get
Typically every morning Molly is up by 6:30am to start getting ready for her day, the baby is usually up for a bit around 6:45am wanting to eat and most of the time falls back to sleep. The two older boys are up by 7:15am, Jeremiah will get himself ready for school, and Molly gets Charlie and Stephen dressed for the day, then Molly gets breakfast ready and the boys sit on the couch watching tv while they eat. Molly tells me that she feels like the boys at times spend too much time watching TV, but she makes sure tha t each day they get out doors or have quiet time playing in their rooms. Molly has to get the Stephen 's diaper bag ready because on Monday, Wednesday and Tuesdays Charlie and Stephen go to their Nanna 's house while Molly works and goes to school. On Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday Lilly comes down to the house by 7:45am so things are as hectic on those days.
The cost of college tuition is an enormous problem now days. For a long time, the subject never got brought up and today things are changing. Students study hard and try their best to get that college acceptance letter from their dream college. Students all around the world are struggling with college debt and trying their hardest to receive those so-called ‘perfect’ grades. However, college tuition is not very affordable and is increasing every year.
In an article I read it says “Not surprisingly, the workload of college is significantly more involved than the high school workload, and it comes with less hand-holding from parents and teachers” (Scott 1). This source is implying that students in community college may get stressed out because of difficult assignments. Keeping in mind that they have other things to do, they may or may not have time to complete their academic tasks. Studying for tests can be a burden. They may have a lot of pressure to pass the assessment.
I know that some people out there would say that there are programs that could help students pay for college and help with study for classes but those programs are not always available for all students. These are the reason why I believe that not everyone, let alone high school graduates should go to college. Tuition cost over the years have continued to rise in cost, with the introduction of new technology. Some students would have to work a full time job in order to pay for their full course load. If a student has to work a full time job and go to school, either one could suffer from the overload of stress or lack of sleep.
General education classes are a common aspect of universities all across the country. However, after examining the statistics, I believe that colleges are requiring too many classes outside of students’ majors. Not only are students forced to enroll in courses that they are not interested in, but they are also struggling to stay motivated in school. Since students are not retaining the information gained in these classes, colleges are also putting these individuals in an unnecessary amount of debt. While there is merit in taking these general courses, the amount of classes needed over four years is discouraging and expensive.
Some families are performance oriented and so demanding that you have to do well in class, get a good grade and hence get a nice job. This pressure is one of the most dangerous of all since the student will not be having someone to run to when things get tough and hence being a big-time pressure to the college student. Peer pressure. It is said we do not choose family, but we choose friends. Peer can be as source of happiness if chosen wisely and they can be a source of pressure if chosen otherwise.
High School will prepare students for college. But, in reality, it is a whole different level when being in college. Even if we say that we studied hard in high school, the struggle most students will face in college is more challenging. Being in college will be the judge on how students will balance their academics and social life. This is why most people are stressed out in college.
The impact of stress on academic success in the college students. Today, the pressure is a huge problem in the crowd, Especially in college students, but many college students don’t know how to control their stress. They also don’t know how the stress is generated. Every year, many college students can 't control their own stress to commit suicide. ( Francesca Di Meglio, 2012,para.4)But Some college students have been successful in relieving stress, let stress become a power.
