    I didn’t know what “elite university” meant in reality. I wasn’t aware of the backgrounds people here would have, and even if I was I don’t think I would have thought it could affect me.

    But people don’t get that I struggle with the reading each week, not because I don’t understand the content, but because I haven’t been taught how to cope with something that extensive; outside reading wasn’t a thing in my state school and college. I also wish there would be more recognition from staff that not everyone has parents who have a degree, are professionals, or at least who brought their children up with information about “the world” – specifically politics and economics. It’s presumed that you have a grasp of everything that’s gone on since the 2008 recession, and that you know how things like the economy work. I don’t, and I feel overwhelmed daily.
