‘Resilience of College Students’
By Shelby Nash
UGA Undergraduate Student
"College students have to be some of the most resilient people in the world. The fear of leaving home and living with strangers is something that may scare people from even attempting college. The fear of failing a class or being alone is another reason some students may shy away from the college experience. However, we are here, and we are getting through these fears together. We are learning to bounce back after a bad test grade or being left out of a social gathering. We are learning how to cope with the stress and anxiety that college life brings. I know that I need to work on these things myself because it is so easy to let this new, strange experience overwhelm us. Resilience is a much needed characteristic among college students, and hopefully, we will all learn to adapt and overcome the struggles we face this upcoming year together"
