SAMPLE FOR RESEARCH PROJECT Fisher, S. (1994). Stress in academic life: The mental assembly line . Bristol, PA: Open University Press. (CAT) This book explained how college students usually experience a great amount of stress as a result of homesickness and the increased workload. Also, the separation from parents has an impact on college students as well. The students feel that they are alone, and they have no control over their new environment so the transition from home to college is quite stressful in itself. Research shows that students are most stressed during the first six weeks of school, because they are trying to become acquainted with the new environment and atmosphere. The new study patterns, the demands of the university and its professors, and the financial management are overwhelming to the average college student. This book cited a few ways of coping with college stress. First of all, there are two different types of stress. The first type, problem-focused stress, involves analyzing the difficult tasks at college and viewing them to see if changes are possible.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
