Why is College a Full Time job?

How can professor expect students to complete five assignments with a deadline within the next 24 hours? 


Do they expect that this is not one of 6 classes each with their own tough course load? I simply don't understand how teachers expect students to do so much in such a short period of time, with no notice, and while juggling jobs to support themselves through all the expenses college entails.


Okay.. rant over.

    That's intense @Kaitlyn McCord 7 I'm so sorry to hear! Were you able to finish or did the professor give an extension on a deadline?

      Yes, of course! These professors believe they are the end all of your assignments, and the best thing you can do with maintaining this is putting their class first (even if it's not your most important class). Make this class a daily activity and it will seem easier.

      My intro to computer science professor was ridiculous with his deadlines. Especially since we'd have a new programming assignment EVERY WEEK. I was taking other rigorous courses including juggling a part time job.

    Might be that particular professor... That's a bit insane, you might want to encourage your peers to ask for an extended deadline or talk it out with the professor. 


    I completely agree that college is overwhelming with the work that comes with the four credit classes stacked on top of each other. It demands much more time management because you have all the time in the day to structure and organize what you want to do everyday, which makes it seem like college is a "full time job." I try to be better at time management and tackle assignments days before the deadline; it actually helps take off the stress a lot, but it does require pushing yourself to get that assignment or lab over with!

    I have definitely been there! College is a full-time job, and then you add in a real job and other extracurricular activities...college students don't get enough credit!
