Adulting is Hard

Strategies + Support for Life in College

When you left for college, you might have expected things like making friends, handling school, and taking care of your everyday needs to go smoothly. Sure, you expected college to be different, but you also heard it's supposed to be the time of your life. Then, as things began to pile up and you started to think about who you are and what you want, you realized that adulting is hard. This can leave many students wondering if something's wrong with them. Everyone makes it look so easy!

If this sounds like you, know that you're not alone and that you're right. Adulting IS hard! As effortless as social media can make perfection appear, it's not reality. It's completely normal to experience new challenges and even failure as you enter this phase of life.

In the Adulting is Hard group, you'll get strategies and support for tackling the emotional and logistical challenges of college and living life on your own.
