Eventually I got introduced into the real world my senior year, and my stress felt like it had doubled. I was constantly pressured into figuring out what college I wanted to earn my major in, along with family obligations, my job, and paying my bills. I desperately wanted to go back to having a carefree life of having zero obligations, unfortunately my circumstances didn't allow it. Now that I'm actually starting college, I now realize all of the problems that every other college student had to go through. Stress is now a part of my life, and I've come to terms with it as of now.
In “College Pressures” by William Zinsser, leader of one of the residential colleges at Yale University, the author describes the different amount of pressures that students struggle with in college. Because of his position at the university, he constantly noticed the students around him and the anxiety that was radiating off them. He believes that economic pressures cause students to feel anxious about paying back student loans after college. However, parental pressure leads students to make decisions that their parents would be happy with because of the feeling of guilt and wanting to please them. Peer and self-induced pressures are also mentioned in Zinsser’s essay.
It can be one of the best experiences in a person’s life, but it is a major adjustment from the life that most people live prior to it. With this adjustment comes many types of stress that a college student will face. Whether it is taking out a loan, trying to make my parents proud, or relearning how to make friends, there will always be some sort of stress that comes along with being a college student. The stress that the average college student will endure can seem to be overwhelming at times, but these stresses are part of the learning experience of college and overcoming them will teach us valuable lessons that will help us in whatever we

Every teen, at some point in their high school career crave money thus leading to the option of possibly working towards getting a job. There are some fair shares of some positives and negatives when it comes to teens working during high school. A teens performance during school might falter or they can be led down the wrong pathway. Teens shouldn’t be working during high school because it can only lead to them facing a situation where they might pick the wrong option and face consequences for it throughout their lifetime. The main problem I believe all working teens face is the effects it has on their academic performance.

Student Ethics in the Digital Age Research Paper Rough Draft Cheating is known widely around the United States of America, occurring mainly in High School and College students. Cheating can result in severe consequences. Cheating has become an ever present problem in schools today, starting in higher level education, students are finding it easier to cheat and feeling less guilty about it, disregarding the effects it has on them and others around and the consequences the students must face due to their actions. Cheating seems to be a recurring problem for higher level education. In the article written by Tommy Raskin titled, “Why Students Cheat?” he states, “Much of schoolwork is not fun, engaging, or inspiring, and students only put up with it so they can graduate, go to college, and then reap the economic benefits they are promised for getting diplomas” (2).
Since GC is about to start finals, I wanted to focus on the topic of education in the United States. At this point, a lot of students are suffering from the stress involved with finals, and this stress really impacts each student in specific ways. Some people cry while studying, while others become angry trying to relearn all of the material from the semester. These intense feelings tend to make students hate the education involved with college, and they only stay at college for the hope of obtaining a better job in the future. This viewpoint on education can actually be witnessed in “Raisin in the Sun.” The conversations between George and Beneatha dealing with their views on education reveals the mindframe of most students in college
The uncertainty and lack of identity is a common cause of stress for me. School-related issues also cause stress for students these days. It can be caused by them doing so badly in college that they gave up all hope of doing something worthwhile with their lives, or it could be caused by just not living up to their own standards. Stress also creates the way people deal with things like smoking and drinking, which are worse ways of dealing with stress. I think that these are some of the most common ways to deal with it.
Applying to colleges can be one of the most stressful things a young adult will ever have to do, but all of the parts leading up to applying for colleges can be even more stressful. High schoolers are constantly worried about all of the things they need to perfect and get done before they apply, such as taking the SATs. Standardized tests affect students much more than anyone would think. There have been several cases over the years where students paid a “smarter” student to take the SATs for them and even went through the trouble to create a fake identity for their test taker just to earn a nearly perfect score because “[o]ne of the most pressure-packed tests a young adult can take, the SAT brings back memories of stress and anxiety for many students” (Page). Students are convinced that this one test impacts their whole future; how good of a college they can get into or how successful they will be when they grow up.
The College Board SAT has received many mixed reviews from fellow students, parents, and even teachers about its effectiveness for college admission. The SAT writing portion in particular affects juniors and seniors who are thinking about and applying to various colleges and universities. Generally speaking, when junior year rolls around, the stress and anxiety builds up when preparing for these standardized tests. Many, including myself when I went through the process, worry about the preparation needed, strategies needed to be learned, and ability of whether or not one is able to sit through the dwelling three-hour exam. In addition, we must take into consideration that some people naturally test better than others on these types of exams.
Being said, students spend most of their time at school, it is the most common place where bullying takes place, especially in middle school. It is becoming a trouble as it is interfering with the student’s academics during school. Bullying is a school matter, school administrators need to deal with situations, and have regulations to create a safe environment for all students. In the article of “School Bullying Declines, Federal Government Says” by Mike Kennedy, strongly supports the idea of helping bullied victims. Research shows students who are a victim struggle in school and would often skip class, furthermore are more likely to abuse drugs and alcohol, be depressed and are at higher risk of committing suicide (Kennedy).
Ap courses are of offered all over the country to high school students to take. Ap class are very hard and rigorous courses to take so, are they worth it for a high school student?

It is a case when a student made a hate profile on myspace about a middle school principal, James McGonigle. This document has four paragraphs explaining what happened to the principle, on this myspace profile, there was a photo of the principal along with offensive and vulgar language. On March 20, the principle was confronted by two teachers who said that some students were discussing the myspace profile in class. They said that the teacher and principal violated the student 's First Amendment free speech rights when he suspended
Standardized Testing: Making College Admissions “Fair” Every year, the daunting prospect of undergoing standardized testing brings anxiety to thousands of high school students, and for good reason: a student’s performance on standardized college admission exams - most importantly, the ACT and SAT - is a major determinant in deciding where they will go to college. For decades, such standardized tests have been universally accepted as part of the admissions process: proponents argue, as Syverson (2007) explains, that such tests are the only way of standardizing college admissions when students from different schools have such widely varying profiles. However, in the past several decades a growing anti-testing movement has begun to poke holes
