What to do if You Hate College

Unhappy College StudentAs students across the country prepare to embark on their fall semester of college, many students are experiencing a range of emotions: fear, excitement, nervousness, confusion, overwhelmed, etc. A lot of students might find that while they have waited their whole high school careers for these next couple of months, there is the chance that they may actually hate college.

So, what do you do if you get to college and absolutely cannot stand it? Well, here are your options.

  • Reflect. Ask yourself if you’re just having a rough couple of weeks or difficulty adjusting. Most students take 5-7 months to really get their bearings at a university and you may just need to stick it out and try a little harder.
  • Join a club, sports team or go Greek. An organization can introduce you to a lot of potential new friends and fill your social calendar to distract you from any feelings of homesickness or loneliness. And while Greek recruitment can be difficult in and of itself, I promise it’s worth it in the end!
  • Consider transferring to another school. Maybe it’s not the entire college experience you hate, it might just be your living situation, your campus or your professors. Half way through your second semester, if you are still unhappy, consider researching online about transferring to another school that will accept your credits so you don’t have to start all over.

Jill Biden, America’s “First Professor”

jill biden

Jill Biden is more than just the wife of new Vice President Joe Biden. She’s Dr. Jill Biden.  Dr. Biden is an English professor, and despite the fact that she’s married to such a high profile figure, she’s not going to stop teaching.

For the past 15 years, Dr. Biden has been an English and writing instructor at Delaware Technical and Community College. While her husband was campaigning for VP, she continued to teach — and graded papers while she was on the road with him.

Upon moving to Washington, she was courted by a number of local schools for a teaching position.  She’s made her choice — Northern Virginia Community College in Alexandria, VA, where Biden will be an adjunct instructor. This semester, Biden will be teaching two courses: an upper level ESL course and a developmental English course.  Because of the anticipated demand for her classes, they are not open to all students; prospective students have to score well on a test to be admitted.

So what kind of a teacher is Jill Biden? Check out her reviews at RateMyProfessor.com.
