The freshman year of college is an initiation into independent living, but it can be incredibly stressful on someone who is not prepared. It is estimated that almost 150,000 students will dropout before starting their second year, and it is not always because of the angry professor or sub-par living conditions. Everything from the cost of living on your own to the stress of trying to balance a job, school, and a completely new kind of social life will weigh heavily on you.
