How to Survive the Mid-College Crisis

Story by Lilly Pandis

Here is my list of 10 things that will help you get through the college crisis:

  1. First of all, breathe, don’t panic.
  2. Get a planner and plan your weeks ahead of time.
  3. Talk to faculty members, friends and family for help and/or advice.
  4. Focus on academics, your social life can wait.
  5. If you’re unsure about your major, remember why you picked it in the first place.
  6. Set attainable goals for yourself.
  7. Stop comparing yourself to your peers.
  8. If you’re worried about internships, start asking around and thinking about different possibilities. Then apply. It never hurts to apply.
  9. Remember that your major doesn’t necessarily limit you to that field after you graduate.
  10. Drink some tea, relax, and realize that this, too, shall pass.
