Common College Students' Problems

Having taught in college for over a decade made me witness different college student excel academically and socially while others fail because of chronic absences or low performance in school.

Normally,  college students can attribute their low performance or failing marks to the following:

  • drug addiction;
  • alcohol addiction;
  • gang wars;
  • financial limitations;
  • family problems;
  • social pressures;
  • poor study habits

 With these identified causes for delinquency, parents, teachers, government agencies and other stakeholders from  effective alcohol rehab treatment centers   and other rehabilitation facilities must take collective action to prevent or address these problems.

Students are not sole responsibilities of  schools, thus, if we want to address common problems  among college students, we can be all  responsible partners.
