Academic activities is the main focus of campus living yet could also pose a risk to one’s health. Some academic programmes are very demanding; talk of schedules of lectures, assignments and project work. Coupled with having to meet your personal academic expectations or that of lecturers, one may find it too hard to handle.
At times one will have to go for early morning class and come back in the evening; do course assignments and prepare for next day quizzes and lectures. This may go deep in the night, preventing students from have enough rest and even sometimes good meals.
Problems usually associated with tedious academic activities include Stress, Headaches, Fatigue and Difficulty in Sleeping. At times, Depression result when students do not meet their course expectations or record low grades.
Proper management of time can help to curb this. Students can discuss academic challenges with their course advisers.
