36 College Students Feeling The Struggle

Diply 28 Sep 2017

In college, the struggle is so real! If you've just started college or are continuing it, you've probably realized that in no time flat.

Recently, a ton of college students have been tweeting how college life has been treating them so far, and honestly, a lot of us are like, "Same!"

We've all been there, so let's have a laugh about it!

1. In a nutshell, it stinks!

This could've been taken during frosh week, or during finals week, who knows? Heck, it could be any time in-between, too, 'cause college life is just messy.

2. This is so me IRL. ?

The difficulty curve is real. One day you're in high school laughing at how easy everything is, the next, you're in college wondering where your blankey is!

3. Not sure if this was accidental or on purpose.

Twitter | @espmirandaa

On one hand, it'll be a lot harder to concentrate — but also, you just might need a little something to get you through it all!

4. It all comes crashing down! ?

Twitter | @latinoboy112

My guess is that this took place in physics class. What goes up, must come down... even if, you know, it was supposed to stay up there.

5. Wow... what a deal.

12. Finals. I know, I'm sorry to bring that up already, but nothing tops the stress of finals.

Twitter | @AliceGarrix

Sometimes you don't even know where to start! Might as well start with some Netflix.

13. Yeah, I think the worst I ever did on an exam was the one I thought I totally aced.

Instagram | @will_ent

One time I cried before, during, and after an exam. College is no joke you guys.

14. I guess this is really catching on?

16. Students aren't the only ones feelin' messed up over here. Parents are goin' through stuff too! ?

17. A lot of younger people have asked me to describe my university experience in a nutshell — I think this is the best way.

I don't know how it happened, but I finished.

18. Or, if you want to describe college life in general, I think this one also does the trick.

Twitter | @tbhjuststop

If I could've majored in it, I'd have a doctorate in napping.

19. That first week should be clear sailing — you know, getting used to being back in academics.

Facebook | Student Problems

Some profs, however, waste no time and throw off everybody by starting immediately!

20. When you're taking at least five different classes, it's super hard to stay on top of things.

Twitter | @StudentProblems

It's on the syllabus, in my calendar, and tattooed on my best friend's head, but I'll still forget!

Load Comments

21. Then, when it comes time to start crackin' down on the workload, you're already exhausted. 

Tumblr | americanboyftkanye

I would do this all the time. Start a few things for about 20 minutes, then break for the day.

22. Morning lectures are the wooorst! No amount of coffee or Jamba Juice can keep you up through three hours of monotonous droning.

Twitter | @SpeakComedy

And they wonder why attendance is so small.

Load Comments

23. The more you go through college, the more you get used to it. Eventually, you're "fine" with all the crap going on.

Twitter | @StudentProblems

It's a hell of a roller coaster ride.

Load Comments

24. Procrastination is inevitable. I mean, determination is a great thing, but don't fool yourself.

Twitter | @Powerful

You know what's really gonna happen once you crack open those books on your bed. Bed!!!

Load Comments

25. A lot of the time when a prof says that attendance isn't necessary, you'll see over half the class vanish. 

Twitter | @ColIegeStudent

And if it's not that, most profs don't know you in the sea of a thousand other students.

26. That's commitment right there. ?

27. Just do your best, man, that's all you can do. You probably won't get a zero, at least.

28. Somehow the winter/summer break helps you forget the pain and suffering you endured just a few weeks prior.

Twitter | @ColIegeStudent

It's like child birth. Your body forgets the pain so you can do it all over again.

29. College means that laundry suddenly became a thing you have to do... on your own.

Reddit | backindenim

And it's the worst. But what are you going to do? Buy new underwear every week? Good luck with that!

30. "As you can see, I'm the proud owner of some straight A's."

Instagram | @will_ent

"Yup, so proud that I'm not gonna send another one."

31. Yeah, juggling classes has a way of making us limp to the finish line.

Instagram | Instagram

There are only so many books I can try to absorb before my face tries it up-close and my brain decides that sleep is the best method.

Load Comments

32. And we thought falling asleep on our books was disorienting.

Reddit | XenoFractal

Seriously, I can't even count how many bizarre places I've fallen asleep in.

Load Comments

33. Yeah, it's kind of hard to have school spirit when our wallets clearly don't.

Instagram | Instagram

Huh, pretty weird how people aren't always so keen on you when you make them pay you tens of thousands of dollars.

34. He even made a fork out of one piece! ?

35. I always look back and laugh at how I could have ever been so naive to think college would be easy.

36. If you're a college student currently reading this in an effort to de-stress, just know we're here for you.

It's a tough time, but also one of the greatest. You got this fam!
