New College Students Should Learn to Enjoy Solitary Time

New students to college from high school should learn to enjoy the solitary time before they socialise and build friends rather than feel stressed about it, says a new study.

The researchers from the universities of Carleton (Ottawa), Rochester and Ghent (Belgium) found that students who enjoyed the alone time when fresh to campus developed better psychological health compared to those who felt depressed about social isolation. The study was based on two studies of 147 students in US and 223 in Canada. Those who creatively used the alone time went on to adjust better in college as time progressed.

The transition to college can be stressful for most students who graduate out of high school. However, there is nothing unnatural about it and those who enjoy the transition period can find college life meaningful and also have better psychological health.
