Stress Builds up for Millennial Generation, College Students. From the UT-Arlington Shorthorn. Yes, it's a Real School Paper. And this Article Is Real, Too.
The Millennial Generation’s average stress level is a 5.4 on a scale from 1 to 10, having 1 as “little or no stress” and 10 as “a great deal of stress," according to an article by USA Today College. The average stress level for 2012 was 4.9.
“It shows up in anxiety and human depression,” said distinguished professor James Quick. “Those are the two most common ways that people exhibit too much stress or having difficulty with stress.”
Students become stressed when they are having difficulty with homework or they do not have the skills to manage their stress, he said.
