ABSTRACT: Attending a university is a new experience that can induce stress for many college students, impacting their sense of well-being. Current research indicates that the prevalence of stress is increasing among college students and impacts student achievement and student retention, both issues integral to the mission of any university. This paper intends to present the results of a case study conducted during the academic year 2007-2008 on a representative sample of UOB students living on Balamand campus. It analyzes the stressors as lived and expressed by the students on the campus of the University of Balamand in relationship to the faculty they come from, their year of studies and their milieu of residence. Suggestions for developing appropriate programs to help students cope effectively will be addressed.
