College Struggles That Will Make You Laugh, Then Cry
College life isn't exactly as glitzy and awesome as you thought it would be. You've faced several bumps on the road and shed buckets of blood, sweat, and tears. Whether you're a bright-eyed freshman or a graduating senior, rest assured you can surpass these relatable struggles:
1. “I have nothing to wear!”
Some schools give their students the freedom to more or less wear whatever they want, which is both a blessing and a curse. While dressing according to your personality is 100 percent fun, planning the perfect outfit every day can be stressful, especially when you’re already running late for your 8 a.m. class!
2. 24/7 group meetings
College students are pack animals; they thrive in block study sessions and org meetings. But searching for the perfect coffee shop (one with free WiFi) to study in can be so time-consuming. Make your life a little easier by connecting to GoWiFi, so you’ll always have stable internet access when you need it most, like during midterms and finals week.
3. Budget, budget, budget
No matter how thrifty you are, you’re still bound to spend a lot of cash while in college. Getting readings can be expensive, and dining out with your blockmates can easily drain your weekly budget. Download a money management app and religiously track all your expenses to make sure you don’t spend your week’s allowance in just one day!
4. BS Management, minor in Orgs
Acads is life, but your orgs are life-r. Prepping for a theo quiz, philo orals, and a calculus exam while managing your org’s ticket booth during lunch and squeezing in an after-class org meeting can make you go cray-cray. But the friendships you’ll build and the memories you’ll create can make all the stress totally worth it.
5. An eat-ernal problem
The more people there are in your squad, the more difficult it can be to agree on where to have lunch. Because we all know “kahit saan” doesn’t count, why don’t you pick a place that offers GoWiFi? Since you don't need a password to connect to GoWiFi, you can enjoy your meal and post IG stories in real time without having to log in to unsecured networks.
6. One word: boys.
If you come from an all-girls school, seeing guys everywhere on campus can be nerve-wracking at first. While boys can be rowdy, they can also be some of your best-est friends. Crushing on a cute classmate can motivate you more to ace your lessons, too! ;)
7. LDR time…ish
So you and your boyfriend aren’t going to the same university after being inseparable in high school. Don’t stress about it because you and your bae can totally make it work! All you need is patience, understanding, and constant communication. Plus, with GoWiFi’s no-password feature, you can easily send him messages and photos without getting interrupted by annoying log-in pop-ups. Watch this video to learn how GoWiFi works:
