College is a great time for most people, because it's a chance to really explore who we are and not feel pressured to do anything we don't want to do. But inevitably, pressures do arise from other unexpected areas -- girlfriends, boyfriends, roommates, frat brothers or sorority sisters, heavy course loads, athletics, exam and paper stress, Internet overuse, gaming too much, parents' expectations, etc. etc.

The key to a good time at college is to be prepared psychologically for what you are about to face. In that vein, we've compiled some of our most popular and useful articles on college life for this Psychological College Survival Guide. Enjoy.
