How stress can affect student performance

By Emily Unnone, contributing writer

Demanding credit hours, work, and maintaining relationships can all add up to a stressful semester for a student. According to TIME magazine, college students are more stressed out than ever before. Students have a unique level of stress, due to the culture that they are living in.

According to the article published by TIME, students today are feeling more pressure from the beginning of college to be successful. Students tend to compare themselves to other students, whether it is on social media, test scores or who got an offer on a better internship. The amount of work required for different classes may also be stress inducing. Occasionally due dates are around the same time and it can get very difficult to manage all of those exams at the same time.
