Stress is part of a student’s life on campus. It is probably the first time you are responsible for your academic success and physically away from your parents or guardians. Little stress is suitable for students since it motivates them to overcome life challenges. However, a lot of stress can negatively affect the student body and mind, which results in many issues. Many articles found on Best Essay Help give extensive insight into the sources of stress in college students.

Others think that University students do not experience lots of stress. To them, a student should only appear for classes, excel in their tests, and after that graduate. Stress within college students can be devastating and affect several areas of student’s life in totality. Research has shown that about 45% of college students seek help because of stress or stress-related issues such as depression and anxiety.


Financial stress: All college students have financial concerns. Their financial interests range from paying for necessities and housing while on no or little income, how to repay loans, and how to pay tuition fees. Students who have parents or guardians support to meet the cost of their studies also have stress on campus. While acknowledging they need help, most students do not desire to burden their parents or guardians. Hence resulting in they feeling guilty about spending parents’ guardian’s finances. Therefore they need to take more financial help.


Job outlook stress: College thinks of future jobs that will enable them to repay their loans within the shortest time possible. However, not all jobs offer this benefit. For instance, a student might incur a debt of $70,000.00 and land a job that pays between $25,000.00 and $40,000.00. Stress creeps when a student realizes that he or she will have many more years to repay the loan. They even get more stress on the realization that they need unique qualities from the other candidates. Job searching is another source of stress.


Academic stress: Class requirements can be overwhelming to students leading to the development of stress. To prepare them for future work and responsibility, University professors expect students to read, prepare for examinations, and finish homework assignments. Besides this, students should participate in outside of class activities, writing journals, and research papers. All these activities combined and the multitude of classes students have is enough to make college students develop some academic stress. However, not all stress emanates from professors, but some come from poor time management from the side of students.


Family stress: Without intention, some parents exert unnecessary pressure on their children, leading to stress. They place high expectations from their academic and life success, creating high stress to achieve the set-out targets. Families are unique and not perfect; family imperfections can result in an overload of stress. Concerns encountered by families that can lead to stress include poor communication, finances, and divorce. The majority of college students would desire to please parents, even if they get assurance from their parents.


Everything is stress: Besides, from worries of getting a job after graduation, family worries, and academic worries, all that goes on in students’ life create stress. Pressure from friends can cause stress on college students. They face peer pressure several times from the dorm, cafeteria, and even in class. They convinced each other to forego their responsibilities to attend concerts and parties. On rare occasions, they are under pressure to engage in life-threatening actions like drinking alcohol and drug abuse. In the end, it leads to bad decisions with negative consequences such as sexual assaults.


Avoid stress in college: Universities provide counseling services to their students. While others have affiliations with professional bodies to assists students in overcoming stress. If in need of stress-related help, seek help from the University counseling section, then create an action plan to assist overcome stress. Other professional bodies offer peer mentoring to students.
