Smile Can anyone help me .. thanks




Hi

how r u all ?

I know its strange that Im here and I have a topic, but but but
I really need a help

Ok let me explain


I want three articles about something related to university life
for example, roommate problem , sleep disability , homesickness
or difficulties of exams


I will not confuse u with more than one subtopic
If you can help and give a hand, I want just one or two articles about
sleep disability or difficulties of exams

I want the two articles about one subtopic , not one about something and
another about something else

The articles must have a source so I can recognize who wrote
them and when it was written

In fact, my homework is to read the articles and summarize them
I dont have a problem with summarizing , but with search about
good articles with specific source

Note: The source might be specific writer , website , magazine or
newspaper


thanks a lot for help and believe me I will
appreciate what u r going to bring even if
its not acceptable

Anas

Hi my friend Anas , how are you doing ? first of all , I got confused and astonished
when you said that it was strange being here in these forums as though one shouldn't have been spotted or caught red-handed while skimming through the pages of these section threads
you know , being here is allowed for all members and it's our pleasure and duty to help you once you have a problem or
a question to raise or ask

well, I've tried to look for articles relating to university and students' life and I've come up with the following ones so far

....

Adjusting to university life

Whether this is your first time away from home or you are going back to study after a break, starting university is a time of great change.

Even if it is exciting, change is not always easy to cope with. The first few days can be quite bewildering with so many meetings, a sea of new faces, things to do and finding your way around the campus.

It is not at all unusual or surprising to feel lost or lonely in this situation. Other new students may be feeling just the same, and this is the ideal time to meet and make friends. It is important to give yourself time when in this transition and not to expect too much of yourself.
The W-curve and the first year of university

Based upon research done with students studying abroad, the W-curve is a predictable pattern of stages which any first year student can experience after arriving at university.

Initially, you may think you have made a mistake in going to university but knowing about the W-curve helps you see culture shock as part of a journey everyone goes through.

Emotions during the first year of university often follow a W-shaped curve
The honeymoon

The honeymoon starts before students first arrive on campus. Although they may also experience some nervousness, the overall feeling is generally one of excitement and positive anticipation. In Freshers' Week there is generally a strong sense of welcoming from the campus community. The initial sense of freedom new students feel is often exhilarating.

It is common though for students to begin to have some feelings of homesickness mixed in with all of the fun and energy of a new beginning.
Culture shock

As the newness of the college culture begins to wear off, new students begin to deal with the reality of all the adjustments they are going through: sharing living areas, meeting people from different backgrounds and cultures. Routine tasks that were taken for granted at home can become problematic chores. Working out where to shop, get a haircut or receive medical attention can create feelings of insecurity and frustration. The less rigid routine of university can also be unnerving.

Students are becoming self-sufficient, establishing identity, and accepting responsibility for their actions. First year students have many personal issues to deal with in addition to focusing on academic work: reworking relationships with parents, establishing new relationships with peers, dealing with conflicting values, separation and its resultant anxiety. It is a period of huge potentially positive change, but also a period of intense personal conflict and anxiety.
Initial adjustment

As initial adjustments are made, new students experience an upswing and sense of well-being having successfully managed issues that have come their way. They fall into a routine as they gain confidence in their ability to handle university life. They feel they have regained control and normality in their lives. Conflicts and challenges may still continue to come and go, but students are now feeling more in the swing of things.
Mental isolation

When students go home at Christmas they make comparisons between their university culture and their more familiar home culture. Strong feelings of homesickness begin to surface and it is a time of feeling caught between two worlds. University is still not as comfortable as home used to be but home is not as familiar as it once was.

You may not realize how much you miss home until you have been away for quite awhile. And even then, going home to visit can still leave you feeling homesick for a home environment that no longer seems to exist. Changes may have happened at home too, and not having been there on a day-to-day basis can be upsetting.
Acceptance, integration and connectedness

As you become more involved in university life, gain some history with new friends and get to know academic expectations, you begin to feel a better connection to the campus community. You begin to have a more balanced and realistic view of the university, seeing and integrating the good experiences with the challenges.
Tips for settling in
Take time for reflection

Build in some time every day to just chill out rather than bouncing from one event to the next constantly. It is important to get enough sleep, but also to relax with music, the paper, in a hot bath or doing whatever you like doing.

Taking time out lets you reflect on your new experiences. You may wish to use it to consider decisions about your course, who to spend time with or what to get involved in.
Expect it to be nerve-racking

Remember everybody is finding their feet, however cool and confident they may appear. You are surrounded by people from different backgrounds and of different nationalities, but the one thing everyone has in common is that they are surrounded by strangers and do not want to be rejected.

Anxiety at this stage is completely normal and if you do not find your lifetime friends in the first fortnight, you are certainly not alone. Having a few nerves does not mean you are going wrong.
Maximise the chances of finding people you get on with

Go to things you know you will enjoy. Do not feel you have to keep in with the crowd at all costs. If you have longed to explore different interests or change your image, but not had the chance, university is a great opportunity.
Do not beat yourself up

Do not worry if you are not always at ease socially, or if you say or do something you later regret. Learn whatever lesson is there for you, then forget about it and move on.
Do not be pressurised into doing things you do not want to do

Whether it is spending more money than you can afford, using drugs, having sex or even just going out when you are knackered, you do not have to do anything if you do not want to.
Do not bottle up problems

Talk to someone: either a friend, family member or one of the student support teams.
Be organised from the start

University life demands a high level of self-organisation because you have so much freedom. Think about how you divide up your time and get clear how many hours a week of academic work you need to put in. Doing so will help you to make the most of your free time.

..........................

Academic pressures
Disposing some myths

* Getting a degree is not easy
* Despite what you might think, everyone else is not achieving without effort
* You are not alone in feeling under pressure
* You are not weak if you ask for help

Studying can be hard work

Studying is a surprisingly emotional process. You invest a piece of yourself when you hand in an assignment or sit an exam so results or constructive criticism are taken very personally. Remember that people are marking your work (an external action), not whether you are a good person.

Studying is also a process where the rewards are few and distant. Few of us would go to work if we had to wait three years before getting paid. These two factors often increase levels of stress and anxiety and can contribute to a lack of motivation.
Avoiding burnout





You can get caught in a pattern of behaviour that often leads to increased pressure and sometimes burnout (lack of motivation, depression, isolation, loss of confidence). The academic pressure pattern becomes self-perpetuating because the more you work to get away from the pressure the more you find yourself in the cycle.

Piling academic pressure on yourself can form a vicious cycle which will cause you to burn out

If you feel trapped by the pressure to succeed then please talk to someone. The Open Door Team ([email protected]) provides a safe and confidential environment to talk about your situation. We can also offer strategies to help you to manage the academic pressures successfully.

You may also find yourself facing other issues: procrastination, perfectionism, exam panic, stress and anxiety.
Problems with your academic supervisor

A supervisory relationship, like any other relationship, can encounter problems from time to time which you may find difficult to cope with.

You may have difficulties with your supervisor for a variety of personal, study-related or administrative reasons. It can often be difficult to broach the subject with your supervisor because of the unequal and often imbalanced nature of the supervisory relationship.

The Open Door Team ([email protected]) understands how difficult this can be. We are often approached by students experiencing such difficulties. It can often help to talk through the issues in a supportive and confidential environment.

........................

Loneliness

It is not unusual for students to feel lonely.

With people all around you and lots of exciting and interesting things to do, it might seem that university would not be a lonely place.

The feeling of loneliness can be worse if you perceive everyone else to be making friends and having a good time. You may feel unwelcome, on the edge of things, or that there is something wrong with you.
Going to university is a big change

In fact, it is really not at all surprising that you might feel lonely. Many students feel lonely from time to time.

You probably expect yourself to become independent straightaway but the transition to a different environment can be quite a challenge. You have probably just left home and familiar surroundings and the friends and people that you are used to are no longer available in the same way.

If you are feeling unsure of the situation then you may find that you feel less confident, even if you are usually quite a confident person. You might feel socially inept and think that you are not managing things as you should.

You may have high expectations of what university is like and how you should be while a student and so you may become disillusioned and feel let down. This can add to the feeling of loneliness.
What you can do about feeling lonely

The first thing to keep in mind is that you are certainly not the only one feeling lonely. Loneliness is common at university, most people feel lonely at some time. The actual feeling of loneliness is a 'flag' that there is some thing that you need, so take notice of the feeling.

* Do not hide away or avoid people
* Try to put yourself in situations where you can become involved conversations and activities
* Take the initiative and talk to other people rather than waiting for them to talk to you
* Say "hello" or maybe just smile, it will usually be returned
* Be positive when you talk with people, no one likes a grump!
* Get involved in societies or voluntary work
* Balance your time so sometimes you are with people and sometimes you are alone
* Work out if you prefer to talk in groups or have one-to-one conversations or a mixture of the two
* Keep trying even if your first attempts are not very successful - you may be expecting too much of yourself and others
