College can be stressful, especially as a freshman when you have to be independent. You have a lot of pressure to grow up and pick a career. Many college students experienced a huge amount of stress their freshman year. They want to pick a career that you’ll love, but finding one isn’t as easy as it sounds. They worry about a lifetime commitment. It’s also hard for college students to find that school and social life balance. With all the loads of homework they get, it’s hard to have a social life and enjoy themselves. But there are also great things about college, like having the freedom to your education.
