Coping with College
College can be a stressful time if you are not prepared for it. School work is much harder than it’s ever been, you are forced to live with a stranger after spending 18 or more years living with your parents, and relationships are just so much more complicated. Not only that, but you are put into this awkward situation with thousands of your peers.
Some of those peers make it seem simple, while others are barely making it through the week. This issue is even worse at a small university like Lynchburg College because everything you do it under the magnifying glass of your peers. College can swallow you up and spit you right back into your parent’s house if you aren’t prepared for all the pressures it brings.
