Some of you have already graduated, some are still experiencing the sweet torture of being a college student. Some may have not yet experienced it and still are enjoying life. For those who already graduated and those who are currently in college, what would be the hardest part of your college life?

for me, i'm a nursing student and i'm currently in 3rd year...the hardest part in college is that you are not sure if your choice of course is really the one you will end up in the future....i'm not sure if i really want to be a nurse someday...another thing is that the hard subjects that i have to face every semester...and in the end of the semester, the uncomfortable feeling of wondering if i passed or not...

it reminds me of my college time that all of my classmates are too busy studying the lesson for the preparation of the final exam. it makes me so difficult that i have to make friends just to have more knowledge that we could not survive if we are alone and no one will help you to give an answer in the final exam. it is about time to think that we have to pass so that we have a good carreir waiting for us.

I think the most difficult part of college is when you near the end. That is when you begin to think about what your role in society will be and what your time in college means to society. Questions hit you such as Did I study to make a signincant change in my field? or Did I study to make tons of money?. These are just the few questions that one encounters out of the very many. The exist from college is determined by what your purpose in life really is and not about what you hope to become.

Cheers! I'm currently a senior college student and yes, I am currently experiencing the sweet torture of being such. For me, the hardest part of being a college student is the upcoming of every exams. I got so scared each time there is an upcoming exam because i really want to get high scores and excel in many field. I find it hard to study because i can't concentrate well when i study at night. I usually study at dawn and got so sleepy during day time. So, it's very hard for me to get so sleepy.

The hardest part about college for me is paying for the whole deal. I am gonna be in so much debt after four years it's already depressing. I'm trying to get a job on campus, but that isn't working out either. oh well hopefully I can deal with the debt or win the lottery soon.

For me the hardest part of being a student is trying to make enough time for work, homework, friends and family; specially when tests are coming up.

for me it is getting the motivation to get off the computer and start studying.

For me the hardest part of my college life is that when everything comes at once, the requirements the projects and all that. Because in my course we have to make so many productions at once. But still it's part of college life. Another hard part in college is when one can really get almost no decent sleep because of the requirements. And that is what I can't really take all at once. But still college life is good! I'm glad i'm about to graduate in college!
