This makes it harder for students going to college to graduate and brings a lot of stress to their lives. According to Lockman, suicide is estimated to occur at a rate of between 4.25 and 6.5 per 100,000 students, and this is the second cause of death for college youth. (154) When the workload in college is overflowing and you’re expected to put hours into studying for each course you take, students get stressed. I personally have felt this way in college with the last semester I took.
Only you can choose which way your life should turn so choose it wisely. Not everyone is lucky to have chosen the right path for themselves thus there are many college drop outs each year, academically they couldn’t cope with the heavy loads of subjects, its mainly because they didn’t seek help from the counselors when they should have in the beginning of their college first year, nowadays the colleges have started more activities along with studies, one should always take active part in college sports and other activities for recreation in between their studies. The first year college days will slowly turn to be more lively and welcoming, you will wake up each day to find a new thing to do, you will start deciding about what you actually want to be in future. You will find your self to be more focused about your future prospects, you might be attracted towards a particular subject and put more effort to get a degree on that. College life is all about learning about your self, it’s the time when you will decide what you really want to be in

My social network was terribly weak and all my friends were Russian-speaking, who, like me, were not interested in anything other than studying in our university. It is not surprising that outside the university I had many more friends than at the university. However, once, after another boring and unremarkable semester, I decided that it is time to change something in life, get rid of complexes and stop being afraid to make new acquaintances. Therefore, before the beginning of my sixth semester, I was looking for an opportunity to join the university life and found an organization called KUBS Global. So, since the last semester, I have been participating in this organization and I have been a

I, personally, have reached a level of dissatisfaction and embarrassment with my first roommate at the dorms, making me cry for nights and even not sleep in my own room. My roommate was my so
Faith, a student who gave her opinion to the New York Times, says that those students “can’t afford review books,” have to “take care of siblings,” and have to work to “bring home a paycheck for bills.” Affirmative action allows colleges to be more forgiving to these kind of students who’s GPAs and resumes suffer because of their lack of resources and responsibilities beyond school. However, this argument ignores the fact that affirmative action doesn’t actually solve any of these issues. There will still be students who, due to circumstances beyond their control, cannot succeed as much in school compared to other students. These are real examples of the institutional disadvantages minorities face. Wouldn’t it be better to solve these issues directly instead of offering the sloppy workaround that is affirmative action?

This is made worse by the sight of others who seem perfectly at ease, are rapidly making friends and are becoming embedded in groups from which one feels excluded or only tolerated on the margins. Looked at from another angle, however, it is not surprising that loneliness at college and universities is common especially among first year students. Coming to college and is a major stage in 'leaving home'. It may indeed be the first time one is away not just from the supportive familiarity of home and family, but away also from friendships that may have been built up over

if it doesn’t help your situation; then it not even important. Even if it a good deed it always something that wasn’t done. For example, Obamacare it was supposed to help people who didn’t have health insurance but because it was not totally free, he was counted as the worst president. Or the time where we had a poor unemployment rate. I feel like this because you have many dropouts and convinces in today society, plus the fact that jobs are now required that you are (a. have not been to jail/prison) (b. have a high school diploma) or (c. be free of drugs).
Not only is it gruelling, the pace is scorching, and, for most candidates, the overriding feeling during the first semester is one of drowning, arms flailing et al. Anyone who’s taken the program will tell you that it’s a very visceral experience, both the highs and the lows, and there’s really very little that can prepare you for it. ‘Immersive’ is perhaps the best way to describe this two-year course. Apart from classroom learning, there is so much else you can do towards achieving self-discovery, and social and academic growth, that you always have to keep your eye on the ball lest you lose sight of your goals. We don’t mean to scare you; we are simply validating your feelings of vulnerability.
