    I'm dropping out. I'm way too tame

    for the college life. I hate everything about it. And who says I can get a good job without a college degree? I'll still pursue my dreams. Besides, I'll be saving a **** ton of money. I don't care about the "it'll get better" because stfu. I don't give a flying fig. It's not...

    My college life is the worst.

    No. It's not the academics that make me feel bad about college. I just hate my everyday life, my surroundings, the people. Last night, I just cried for hours because I really don't want to do it anymore... but I have to. I can't tell this to anyone. No one knows how I feel...

    I hate college so much.

    I don't know how I'll ever manage to go back tomorrow after having the last month off. I really really really don't want to go.

    College isn't for me.

    Not because I have to grow up and make my own decisions but because sit down and learn **** is not what I want to do with my life. When I graduated highschool I had two paths I was looking at taking. Culinary or music. I was the top clarinet player at my school all four years. I...

    College Sucks!

    College makes me so stressed out, there are so many decisions to make. What college do I want to go to or what college will accept me. What will my major be and don't make any mistakes because the whole rest of your life depends on the choices that you are making now. And if you...

    I'm currently a senior at a small private

    school. I'll be spending my three day weekend doing homework. I'm so tired of homework, exams, essays, and presentations. School needs to be over now.

    Just a few more weeks.

    .. And then no more wanting to be dead instead of doing work I no longer enjoy. And then I can sleep without fearing the alarm! :) Until I get a job anyway.

    to let you know my pain. I wouldn't say pain so much and I wouldn't say I hate college, it's just the situation they are putting me through, it's unfair. I started college around a year ago, doing A levels. Media, Photography, Law and Sociology (along with maths because I had...

    I hate my college so much.

    It kills me that my parents are spending all this money per year for me to come here and hate my life. The thing is, there's a big divide between my academic life here and my social life. Academically, this is the right school for me. I'm a writing student, and not many...

    I HATE College..

    College is horrible. I almost dislike everything about it. It is not fun nor exciting like people have told me in the past. Here is my growing list of grievances... 1. The classes are always across campus so it literally takes me 15-20 to walk to class! 2. I never seem to get...

    Drunk College Students

    I've been in music school

    for the last four years and hated every minute of it. I feel like college has been detrimental to my character. I'm about as jaded as one can be. I'm cynical, I'm angry, and I'm sad. It wasn't always this way. Before entering college, I was a vibrant, excitable teenager...

    I Just Don't Like People My Age...

    Soul Crushing Experience

    I have no friends and terrible social anxiety.

    I KNOW, on a campus of 40,000, there is someone who I can be friends with but I just don't have the courage to join clubs or talk to people so I'm miserable and alone.

    My older daughter has great academics,

    I was brainwashed as a parent to encourage this. Now the least expensive school she was accepted at is $41,000 per year just for tuition. My youngest child says "Dad - I am doing so good in school right now!"....I said no please don't - "GO play with your friends"

    that college is supposed to be the best time of your life. Where you actually get together with people you like and enjoy being around. But none of that is real. It's filled to the brim with boring workaholics who don't want anything to do with you. They always have some excuse...
