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.

According to the USA Today, colleges and universities are going out of their way to help transfer students more than ever.  Although these students have often fallen through the cracks, their rising numbers mean that schools need to find ways to better meet their needs.
