CHAPTER 1
THE PROBLEM AND ITS SCOPE
INTRODUCTION
RATIONALE
Many college students may find the academic experience very stressful (K. J. Swick, 1987). One potential coping strategy frequently offered by university counseling services is time management. 165 students completed a questionnaire assessing their time management behaviors and attitudes, stress, and self-perceptions of performance and grade point average (GPA). The study revealed 2 major findings. The Time Management Behavior Scale consists of 4 relatively independent factors; the most predictive was Perceived Control of Time. Students who perceived control of their time reported significantly greater evaluations of their performance, greater work and life satisfaction, less role ambiguity, less role overload, and fewer job-induced and somatic tensions. Findings are consistent with theory and advice on time management (e.g., R. S. Schuler; 1979) but also indicate that the dynamics of time management are more complex than previously believed.

Introduction
Researchers focused much of their attention in studying the importance of Intelligence Quotient (IQ) and Emotional Quotient (EQ) because of the thought that these two are important determinants of success. But few years back, Dr. Paul G. Stoltz introduced another concept which talks about how well a person was able to cope, handle and withstand adversities, to recover from those adversities and to turn them into opportunities. This concept is called Adversity By understanding the concept of AQ® we can better understand how we and others react to challenge and adversity in all aspects of our lives. In fact, how people respond to adversity is a strong indicator of ability to succeed in many endeavors (http://stitchestm. blogspot.com/2007/09/adversity-quotient-aqemerging.html). As Adversity Quotient® tells how an individual withstand adversity and his ability to surmount it and it predicts who gives up and who prevails. Adversity Quotient® is the measure on how an individual respond in a given situation. Also Adversity Quotient® determines whether an individual will stand strong and true when faced with adversity or the person will be crippled or destroyed (Stoltz, 1999).

Today, most people are faced with different adversities. This is the reason why there are organizations that offer help to those who are in need of it. For students, most especially the freshmen who are experiencing the difficulty of the transition from high school to college, they are also given some guidance by the school through mentoring programs. Facing their new environment would mean facing challenging and different obstacles in their career. But how do they face some difficult situations that come up during their adolescent years? What would be the...
