The 10 Biggest Regrets Recent College Graduates Have

College. It’s supposed to be the best four years of your life. However, a survey states that many college students wish they could’ve lived their college life differently. A survey conducted by the American College Health Association in Spring 2013, found many interesting details explaining why students regret their four years of college. The study found that 23.3% of students surveyed had felt, “very sad,” in the two weeks immediately prior to the survey, with 10.1% reporting having felt depressed to such an extent that it interfered with their everyday lives. In areas that can be directly linked with college experience, 34.8% of the students claimed to have found managing their finances traumatic and difficult to handle, with 26.6% experiencing similar stress over career issues.

With it being a New Year, it’s time to make changes to avoid the same 10 biggest regrets post-grad students had about their college experience:
