    The Most Challenging task That College Student will Prepare Is That The Requirements That The Professors Are Implied Most Of Them Are Very High In Their Standards, also The Submission Of That Requirements.

    growing up!

    Don't get me wrong, the rigor of academics has reached a whole new level, but high school ACTUALLY prepared me for that. Learning how to be a grown adult and maintaining your car, doing your taxes, scheduling your own doctors appointment, doing your laundry without ruining them, and just attempting not to go broke... now, that is something else.

    Academics would be the most challenging one depending on the difficulty of your classes.

    Although growing up can be a transition for some people, it all depends on how you were raised. For me, I was raised by a good mom who had expectations that she expected me to meet. Now at 19 years old, (will be 20 by the end of the month), I'm not afraid to live by myself or with a roommate(s). While some college students still feel attached to their parents as in wanting to live with them until they feel comfortable living on their own, they probably aren't ready to start an independent life mentally and financially. But, I will still live with my mom after college until I get on my feet.

    Sometimes, the more "outgoing" social life which includes partying/drinking can be hard for some people to deal with. Partying/drinking every Friday and Saturday night can cause you to miss out on doing other things while in college.

    On an extra note, I believe that it also depends on a person's motivation and hobbies while in college.

    Motivation = studying and getting your work done

    Hobbies: doing things that you enjoy

    As a new college kid who is a month into my experience, the social life has been hardest. Academics, for me, have come down to just doing the work. The social scene is a lot more complicated.
