No matter how much a student might hate attending classes at college, and no matter what the student says to his colleagues about how useless he found these classes, there is at least one class that he looks forward to (and loves to) attend, and never admits it to anyone. Another fact–the students belonging to the so called cool crowd will never admit that they are insecure about their future and are not as cool as they think of themselves or pretend to be. This makes one think about what would be the top 10 things college students will never admit.
1. They are not enjoying their major. Most college students have given it a thought—to drop a year off and change their major. Many students feel embarrassed to admit this fact mostly because they are in the fear of what the society might think of them.
2. They have friends whom they can have fun with, but not ones whom they can trust, rely on and be open to. College students are unlikely to share their feelings with their college “friends” because these “friends” do not actually care about them and are quite judgemental as well.
3. They judge their fellow mates as well as their friends on the basis of looks, clothes, marks and placement package; and get judged by others in return.
4. They are trying to ignore the harshness they know they will face on their debut into the real world once they graduate. The parties, hanging out with friends, movies etc. are merely methods for cover-up of the fact that college students are terrified of the corporate world and are trying to have as much fun as possible in their college time.
5. They are constantly trying to prove to and please their colleagues so that they feel accepted. In fact, utilization of social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram is extensive because unfortunately, it is a widely accepted belief that these platforms dictate a college going student’s social life.
6. They waste a lot of time. Procrastination is one of their common hobbies. A college student is unlikely to admit that he or she does not not study and what he or she does instead—which is procrastination.
7. They are not genuinely happy about the success of their peers and even their best They are ignoring their passion and doing something what their parents and society expects them to do. College students never admit unless properly confronted that they want to follow their dreams. They wish to live their passion, but they are also unwilling to admit that they are insecure about their future if they do so.
8. They are not genuinely happy about the success of their peers and even their best friends. It is mean and selfish, yet true, that when a college student comes across a really good opportunity or internship, he keeps it to himself. He is unlikely to admit that he wants his individual growth only and does not care about the success of others. Everybody is a part of an undeclared rat race.
9. They miss their school friends, teachers and life in general, which is why they feel lonely, socially impaired and unaccepted. But, college students keep up the facade of being happy by telling everyone how college is about less work load and more partying.
10. They have plans about their future that are not their own, best example being, doing post-graduation from abroad.
These points coerce us to think about the realities of college life, which might seem carefree and fun from outside, but is quite challenging since it is noticeable there are so many things that college students cannot admit.
