For my second field assignment I chose to write about how college students struggle to finish assignments on time and study without using some sort of stimuli. My major focus was how Adderall has become a “study drug” for most college students. Between drinking a soda, coffee, 5 hour energy or energy drink, sometimes students don’t think that is enough. Adderall is a pill that gives you the ability to concentrate with minimal side effects. I think some people find taking the pill every now and then won’t cause them any harm. I was able to interview a few college students who are prescribed Adderall and other college students who have taken or tried Adderall to get through long hours of studying. As some people are open about taking Adderall, others use Adderall in secret.
Adderall is a drug that has been viewed as popular drug in the college life. Regardless of the long hours of work, amount of school work students have, or lack of sleep we might get, it’s important to not procrastinate and learn how to manage your time well. There comes a point in time where we get stressed out being overloaded with assignments and studying especially toward the end of the quarter or semester. We sometimes get caught up in the amount of work we have however being stressed and resorting to Adderall isn’t a good route to take. Studying and starting projects or papers ahead of time will eliminate stress and the need to pull all nighters.
Good luck to everyone studying and finishing up your last assignments. :))
