I Hate College

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 984 People

    The thought of attending college today makes me

    sick to my stomach. I try my hardest all the time and also try my hardest to fit in. The teachers hate me because I'm not what people call 'normal' and it sickens me to think that on the 11th of March there is a parents evening even though I am 18... So much for...

    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...

    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'm Not Motivated.

    I never considered not going to college .  There never seemed to be another option.    Even with AP courses in high school, I was bored out of my mind.  It was hard to find motivation to study because everything came too easily.  I figured that I would...

    Drunk College Students

    I know why college students drink so much. At least I know what drives me to drink. Pointless classes, idiotic professors, idiotic students, never ending homework, never ending group projects, stressful exams, stressful presentations, work, the list goes on. Pointless Classes A...

    Four Things That Are Cheaper Than Class, But Way More Useful
