While in college as well as afterwards, you do a lot and I mean A LOT of reflecting. Assessing where you are is important in life but when you feel pressure to have a certain outcome and realizing you did not achieve this outcome can be disheartening. Your time in college does not have to be “the best four years of your life!" The problem is that there is a stereotype that college will be just that. You will probably hear it a multitude of times leading up to your freshman year and reiterated by older generations still living in the past.
