Practically each of us either was or will be a student. The study occupies the most part of our life. The student’s life of all students is the same: all students have lectures, examinations, tests. Therefore, all students have common problems.

The first vital problem of all students is their financial state. Students never have enough money, because they do not earn money yet, but their needs are rather high: they need to live somewhere, to eat something, and to enjoy.

Another very important problem is a lack of a sleep. The majority of students neglect their sleep, especially when they spend time, surfing the Internet and communicating in social networks.

The tests and examination period is always an unexpected period for students. They know that examinations are inevitable, but at the same time do not get ready for them in advance. They spend time on entertainments and other kinds of activity, forgetting about the coming check of their knowledge.

Another very important problem is a psychological state of students. The first very difficult period is the adaptation of the freshmen. Students are put into a new, not-known environment, they have to get used to a new life, new people, and new requirements. Moreover, at this stage the leader qualities should be revealed, because each student group has leaders. Sometimes students groups compete with each other for the leadership in a student community.

Moreover, the desire of students to work and earn money is also very important. Students want to be independent from their parents and earn money. They need money for entertainment.
