When it Becomes Overwhelming

  • Jessica Stahl

Studying in the U.S. isn't always fun and easy. Sometimes it gets hard - really hard, as international student Irene from Malaysia shares:
The projects are pilling up, due dates are around the corner, exams are indefinitely coming soon in 2 weeks' time and the contents of every courses are extremely difficult. Well, everyone would say this is what a graduate life should be and it is always more challenging than undergraduate. I do agree with that but the expectation is so high here and the pressure is just so intense that there are a few people who blackout in labs or while working on projects.
