As midterms are approaching and the semester is coming to an end, students have different levels of stress. In the last Spartacus poll, we wanted to gauge on-campus tension. We asked “Do you feel stressed? If so, how much?” The options were: “Nah, I can handle the pressure,”  “All the time!,” “About 50% of the time,” “Only when I have too much homework, tests and sports events all in the same week,” and  “Maybe 25% of the time.” 😫

Of the 27 who responded, 46% of voters feel stressed all the time! Fewer than  20% of the respondents said they feel stressed about 50% of the time. Another 17% feel stressed only when they have a lot of assignments while 17% of voters feel they can handle the pressure of stress. And last but not least, 4% of voters feel stressed a quarter of the time. Overall, high school can be a stressful time, or maybe you’re good at handling the pressure. Either way, there are other students out there who feel the same way, so you are not alone.
