Is college life stressful as I hear?
College is as stressful as you make it. If you manage your time well you can easily ace a 18 or 20 credit-hour schedule without issue, even with time to spare for socializing and stuff. If you suck at time management, like I do, and procrastinate all the time, like I also do, then it’s a nightmare. Constant, continual stress. Lots of late nights, rushed papers, skimmed books, guilt, shame, lower grades and less fruitful learning.
College is awesome though, I would never give it up. Just do do what you know you need to do, right away.
