Different Challenges Faced in College

Challenges with Roommates

  • You have to confront challenges due to your roommate eventually so it is best to develop a formidable strategy to deal with problems involving your buddy.
  • You should have the courage to strike a frank discussion in order to establish rules that will administrate your relation with your roommate.
  • Firstly, each other’s clothing and personal items cannot be used without asking.
  • Secondly, you both have to maintain a proper sleeping cycle and any disturbances will not be tolerated.
  • No loud music would be tolerable and it is everybody’s personal responsibility to acquire headphones to listen music quietly.
  • Roommates live like a couple and therefore, developing understanding would be essential to live peacefully in hostel.
  • It is bad idea to involve management due to minute problems. You would be reassign to a new room where you would not be welcomed due to your history as a “sensitive child”.

Time Management

  • You become too much indulged into wayward activities and they cause you to lose educational focus.
  • The first priority should be given to studies and again you will have to turndown invitations to late parties.
  • You should keep reminding yourself that you are in the college to study and parties are just secondary experiences that you will have when time permits.
  • Ability to say no would prevent you from negative social influences that could cause you to smoke and force you to develop into an alcoholic.
  • Remaining sober and clean is much more valuable in college than even your studies.
  • Learn to be a firm naysayer so that you cannot experience dark side of the college.
  • Teachers and parents would not help you out in the college because they may consider you a grownup and you shall be considered as a person who could make his or her decision without any assistance.

Money Problems

  • Spend smartly in college because sooner or later you are going to face money problems.
  • You will not have anyone to turn to when the financial crisis will hit you.
  • Suddenly, the whole world will collapse and soon you will start to grasp at straws to make through a tough day at college.
  • You may have to forego eating to be able to purchase books.
  • Every penny in the college is a piece of gold.
  • Do not waste money on lavish needs.
  • Focus on essentials and do not let anyone talk you into overspending because your friends would be the first ones to flee when fiscal problems would hit.
