I Hate College

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,076 People

    College life in movies is

    so inaccurate and different from what it really is. When I was younger and watched movies with college kids, they were finding true love, partying all night, and everyone looked like models. Reality: I'm in college, I have 2 close friends, I look like my high school self with...

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

    Let me start by saying that I found high school really annoying. I've always felt older than the students around me; I've never thought drinking or smoking made me look cool (many people in my family have had issues with drinking so I plan to avoid it completely), I'm not...

    College Was Terrible!

    As soon as a graduated high school, I applied to several universities to be able to study geography and believing that it would be far superior than high school ever was. Everyone told me that it would be fun, exciting, and that I would make lots of friends there, because, since...

    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.

    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.

    I Hate College Culture!

    I never drank in high school.  I had a couple very close friends who I've known since kindergarden, but never had a really close circle of good friends.  I hated how I was seen as such an innocent person because I never drank, felt like people treated me differently...

    I don't understand the point of spending all

    your money on this education that doesn't even guarantee a good job, I don't understand having to learn a whole bunch of crap that has no relation to the field you want to work in.

    parents moved me in freshman year when I and my dad both cried. I chose, after a considerable amount of pressure from my mom, to attend her alma mater. I was told that it's a good school, that it's only an hour from home so I can come back whenever I like, that it's small so I...

    I Hate College.

    I hate college, but I don't hate to learn. School in general has never been easy for me, because I get bored. I have always been extremely creative, and when I'm not in a creative environment for extended periods of time I loose interest in just about anything happening around me...

    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...

    Lost In College

    Hi. I am a freshman in her first semester of college at a well known university in Boston. Last year, I graduated High School among the top ten in my class. I was excited (and a bit frightened) and thought I was well prepared for this next big step in my life. I imagined college...

    Drunk College Students

    My first semester was

    so easy I decided to go full time this semester and that was a huge mistake. I can't keep up with all my classes. I feel like if I tell anyone that I can't handle it, they'll tell me to grow and grow a pair.

    Soul Crushing Experience

    I've heard many people say, "When you go to college, you go to find out who you are." I say that I already knew who I was, and that college made me completely lose myself. I used to be a person who didn't care what anyone thought of me, who believed in myself to...
