I Hate University But Have to Do It

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 80 People

    I believe that the education system (as it is)

    stole our creativity. You spend all your lifetime worried about your grades, worried about the expectations of your teachers, your parents, the society ... You drew that miserable life plan. You're so obsessed about every step (the finals, the paperwork for next semester), you...

    Left Out, Then Sexually Harrassed... I Feel So Trapped

    I had been looking forward to university for a long time. My high school was ok, but I had high hopes for the next step since it was one of the best universities in the whole country. But as soon as I arrived, I felt out of place. I can't explain why; I went to all the initation...

    This is the moaniest thing I have ever written

    but I really need to vent right now! 2 years ago I started university, I'm a mature student at 23 years old in my first year. I had a job and had many plans for the future. I was a hairdresser and I was saving up to go to Italy to meet the family I was planning on becoming...

    They say I should be grateful.

    Grateful that I have a chance to study, in a country where education is not free. They say it is exciting. Freedom comes to those who live on campus. They say that it will be over soon, just sell your soul one last time. There is nothing that has made me more miserable than...

    Why Isn't It Fun?

    Everybody enjoys university so much, everybody's loving it and claiming there is such a creative air around. All I think is that it's damn cold in the lectures and that those stupid fold-out tables are most inconvenient. I go to university in Germany and I just find it so...

    But Gone Now!

    It was a few years ago - but I still remember how much I disliked it. I only ever went to uni to learn more about literature because I loved it so much. Everyone else seemed to be there for a career and didn´t have much of a love of the subjects they were doing as far as I...

    I am nearly at the end

    or my first year of uni and I hate it . I am unable to cope with the kind of work I mean I am so **** although I was an AAB student at A level . Igo to teachers for help but it seems it's more like if you have it you have it and if you don't you don't

    My experience with college is magnified by my

    experience in high school. I absolutely loved high school. I met so many great friends, and we weren't friends because of proximity. All the friends I made were due to common interests and soon we all began to rely and support each other. I still keep in contact with all of them...

    What I found in University....

    Whoever said that your final exams at the end of year 12 would be the hardest thing you will have to do is a straight up, LIAR. If you were the student who studied really hard and did hard subjects in year 12 and decided to do an easier course afterwards, then yes this may be...

    :: September Has Passed ::

    So... Here I am. Still unscathed but mightily embarrassed about the situation I have put myself in and from now on every tutor I have to see again will be totally humiliating. I am digging a bigger hole for myself and I won't be able to climb out! I have been so devious and I...
