Some students are easygoing with absences from their universities courses, and many judge that they are working. Students prefer to skip their classes, and they prefer to go to their work because they may want to make money. Nevertheless, If students had a high number of absences, they might fail their courses. Even though students are busy or at work, they have to attend their classes in order to pass them. Also, some students make excuses to not attend their courses because they do not want to study.
Concerned parents find that undue amounts are the leading cause of stress in students. This chronic stress can cause a sense of panic and paralysis which only adds to the stress they are already undergoing. To add on, the teenagers themselves are admitting to feeling stressed by school pressures. She gives the example of a sophomore with difficult classes who felt it was better to drop some of the most difficult classes in order to make her life less stressful and for her to have a more balanced life. She still takes her honors courses and has time for herself and her family.
New relationships, or the lack of, can cause stress among students. This is only added onto the pile of other stress that college students are dealing with and must cope with in order to be successful. Nonis states that students should be given more help to lower their stress levels, possibly by the university personnel who might have better resources (Nonis). Like in high school, students should be encouraged to reach out to other people while experiencing all of this stress, instead of coping with it all on their own and eventually just crumbling at the deadline. Along with helpful study habits, advice from peers can be combined to make college a less stressful and more successful
Some other students become so discouraged by the idea of college that they drop out all together. Through my research, steps are incorporated to help keep students from such a drastic alternative. Most commonly, students that plan to attend graduate school become either discouraged by the years added or eager to complete their education process early. Each of these three cases involves a diversion from the original plan and they can all be avoided using the same applied theories. I conducted research to determine reasons why people tend to drop out, change majors, and cut their education short.
It doesn’t make them bad kids, or even bad students. Drop-outs report that some of the main reasons they drop out of school is not seeing value in the work they do. Almost half of them said the classes were not interesting, and were bored of their work, and say it’s among the main reasons students would stop attending classes (Furger “How to End the Dropout Crisis”). Expectations also tend to run high for students by their teachers. Regular students in school also debate to themselves to make the decision of dropping out from time to time, from the stress levels of piling assignments.
Stress can affect not only college students’ health but also their grades because being stressful can prevent students to have a clear mind to complete their works at their best. Therefore, college students should learn to utilize their time better to avoid unnecessary stresses that occurred in their college life. As each new semester begins, many college students found themselves still stuck in their relaxing mindset of break time. Their mentalities were not ready to shift to a ready mode for the upcoming semester of school work. However, as the semester unfolded and speeded up toward their first mid-term or finals, college students found themselves more stress because they have no way to cope with the increasing amount of work they must complete.
It is through hard work that students make it to the end and hopefully are able to continue higher education. Many students make it through easily but many struggle during the process and decide or are even forced to leave their education. But why do students lose their interest in school? It may be that when students notice they are not successful they lose their drive and motivation and would rather do something else with their life that they think is productive. Without success students lose incentives to go to school.
Moreover, students will ultimately get sick. If they are contagious, they could pass on their sickness to everyone else in the class. Also, things will come up and students are going to miss lectures even if it hurts their grade. They might even show up for class late so that they are not penalized but may not pay attention. Therefore, professors need to come up a policy that excludes students who may get sick during the semester, as a result, save other healthy students in the class.
Depressed students may pretend to be sick or cut class because they feel, as Arthur Schoenstadt MD states, “too overwhelmed by their school work or too depressed to leave the house” (Livestrong.com). The feeling of being overwhelmed can make someone with depression completely shut down and avoid all responsibilities. Students with depression also commonly exhibit a lack of motivation and concentration, which can severely impact their education. Researchers have found that, “prolonged dips in mood can greatly impact a student’s ability to study and perform” (jhsap.org). This especially hurts college students, as their academic success is more heavily reliant on self-motivation and concentration as opposed to high school and grade school.
This is evident that student burnout has a negative impact on academic learning. There are several reasons on the importance of student burnout: student burnout may be the underlying key to understanding student behaviors during their studies, student burnout may also influence their relationships, and the frequency of student burnout may affect the general reputation of the institution for new students. Student academic burnout has been explored in the relation of three factors. Those factors are as listed: a low sense of achievement; the decline feeling of proficiency and the want to be able to succeed, depersonalization; the unsettling feelings of detachment, and emotional exhaustion; the feeling of your inner resources being drained. As a college student that has experienced academic burnout, I can say that the three factors; a low sense of achievement, depersonalization, and emotional exhaustion are all true.
