Student-athletes at the college level face a number of challenges and struggles, some of which include:

  1. Balancing academics and athletics: College student-athletes are expected to maintain a high level of academic performance while also dedicating a significant amount of time to their sport. This can be difficult to manage and can lead to feelings of stress and burnout.

  2. Time management: College student-athletes have to balance a heavy workload of classes, practice, games, and other responsibilities which can be very challenging.

  3. Injuries: College sports are highly competitive, and student-athletes are at risk of getting injured. Injuries can be a significant setback for student-athletes, both physically and emotionally.

  4. Dealing with pressure: College student-athletes are under constant pressure to perform well both on and off the field. This can be stressful and can take a toll on their mental health.

  5. Maintaining relationships: College student-athletes often have limited free time and may struggle to maintain relationships with friends and family.

  6. Adapting to a new environment: Many college student-athletes are away from home for the first time and have to adapt to a new environment, which can be challenging.

  7. Financial struggles: Many college student-athletes come from low-income backgrounds and may struggle to make ends meet while they're in college.

  8. Transitioning to the professional level: Many college student-athletes hope to continue playing their sport at the professional level, but the transition can be difficult and uncertain.

In summary, college student-athletes face a number of struggles and challenges, including balancing academics and athletics, time management, injuries, dealing with pressure, maintaining relationships, adapting to a new environment, financial struggles, and transitioning to the professional level.
