Having the time of your life at university?

大学是人生中最美好的时光吗?

University - the best days of my life! I made lots of friends in my student dorm, went to great parties, joined the debating society… and, well, I did some work too - but I must confess my lecturers were very patient with my tardiness.

大学生活——我一生中最美好的日子!我在学生宿舍里交了很多朋友,参加了很棒的聚会,加入了辩论社……我也做了一些工作——但我必须承认,我的老师对我的迟到非常耐心。

It's easy to look back at our university days through rose-tinted spectacles but the truth is that when we first arrived on campus, most of us were out of our comfort zone.

我们很容易看到大学生活美好的一面,但事实是,当我们刚进入校园时,大多数人都走出了自己的舒适区。

In fact, a survey of students at Imperial College London has revealed that 3 out of 4 students experience high levels of stress, or a mental health condition, during their time at college. The survey, completed by over a thousand students, also found that 70% of those that experience stress do so at least once a week, and 9% of students feel stressed constantly.

事实上,一项对伦敦帝国理工学院学生的调查显示,四分之三的学生在大学期间经历了高度的压力或者出现心理健康问题。这项由一千多名学生完成的调查还发现,70%的学生至少每周一次会感觉到压力,而9%的学生却经常感到有压力。

Kirsty, a student at Exeter University, didn't enjoy her first days in college. She says: "When I first got to university I don't think I'd realized that I'd forgotten how to make friends. I'd been with the same school friends for seven years, and so I was trying to balance social success with academic success whilst learning how to look after myself at quite a young age."

克斯蒂是埃克塞特大学的一名学生,她上大学的第一天过得并不如意。她说:“刚上大学时,我想我没有意识到我已经忘记了如何交朋友。我和中学的朋友们在一起七年了,所以我试图平衡社交成功和学业成功这二者的关系,同时我还要学会如何在这么小的年纪照顾好自己。”

Dr Ruth Caleb of the counselling service at Brunel University in London has some tips that should make life easier for students before they set off for university. She says: "Certain things that I think it would be very helpful for students to have put in place are an ability to do the practical things of life - to do the washing, to do the cleaning and so on - being able to cook. Budgeting is extremely important in university life." And Caleb adds: "You should learn how to spend time on your own comfortably."

伦敦布鲁内尔大学心理咨询服务中心的露丝·凯莱布博士提出了一些建议,可以让学生们更容易开启大学生活。她说:“我认为,让学生们要具备实际动手的能力——比如洗衣服、打扫房间等等——还要学会做饭,这些对他们来说是非常有帮助的。学会做预算在大学生活中是极其重要的。”她还补充说:“你应该学会如何舒适地独处。”

I graduated and learnt how to take care of myself the hard way. I hope that new students these days remember to acquire some life skills before they make the big jump.

我艰难地学会了如何照顾自己并且毕业了。我希望当今的新生们在入学前记得学一些生活技能。
