Stress is an inevitable part of life at Colby. But how you handle respond to it will play a huge role in determining your stress' effect on both you and your peers.
College freshmen today are significantly more stressed than they were in the past, according to results from The Cooperative Institutional Research Program’s (CIRP) survey, “The American Freshmen: National Norms Fall 2010.” This survey reports on more than 200,000 full-time freshmen at 279 of the nation’s four-year colleges and universities.
