Avoiding Drama In College


  1. It is easy to spot a drama queen, and if you haven’t seen ‘Mean Girls’, we are going to give you a little hint. It’s that girl who dresses mostly in pink, knows who’s dating who and when she is not talking about best dissertation writing services (because she is too awesome to do her homework), she’s probably discussing you. It’s that gossiper who is living on scandal and never misses an opportunity to talk behind your back. Know her. Avoid her.
  2. Treat people kindly. That’s what your parents told you, and that’s what we are telling you now. If you are being forced into backbiting or gossiping about someone, think of your reputation. People who have been talking nasty about your neighbor might be doing the same to you, so try to stay away from negative influence if you sense one.
  3. Do not add fuel to the fire. We’ve all been emotional in our lives. If you let current feelings prevail, you may find yourself in a situation where you have to engage in drama you didn’t even start. If scandal’s epicenter is not your dream destination, try to be Switzerland. Say nothing, do nothing. Show that you support neither of parties. This way, you won’t have to justify yourself in the future, as you remained neutral.
  4. Do not take things for granted. If a friend of yours approaches saying she heard your name mentioned in a heated discussion, it may be just another rumor. Don’t start a fight if you heard someone say stuff that is not even legit. Save energy for studies rather than waste it on people who are not worth an ounce of your time!
  5. Avoid feuds on social media. If you can’t say it to my face, there is no use posting it on Facebook. Remember there is no way you can get it back once it’s online. If you are not sure whether you want your reputation at stake, it’s better to leave it to social media fans. Besides, if you see your friends fighting for a lost cause, you can point out the uselessness of their efforts or be an impassive witness. Either way, our advice is simple: do not get involved. You will see there is nothing pretty about being an attention seeker without reason. Tell drama queens to leave their theatrical poses and mannerisms for another time!
  6. Do not become involved if you don’t know who’s right, in other words – don’t go searching for drama. College’s got a lot more in store for you than sharing secrets in the uni hall. Focus on your education and avoid people who start and spread gossip. After all, it’s all about how you feel and the way you are perceived. Besides, you will have a lot to learn once you start the studying routine!
