Every new school year offers new challenges for students as they promote into the next grade. There's excitement and maybe even a little bit of anxiety about the new school year, the new goals and challenges that each student starts to anticipate. Parents do their best to prepare their kids, no matter what the age. But there might be one student category that has a bit more anxiety and needs just a little more support that would be the college freshman. The research design is Pre Experimental research design. (One group pre-test-post test design)Conceptual Framework based on general system theory modified Ludwig vonbertalanffy's. The study had been conducted in Harivandana College, Rajkot. The samples were selected for this study by adopting purposive non probability sampling technique. The sample size was 40. As an intervention I administered the Educational Stress Scale for adolescents (ESSA) to measure the level of stress among college students. After that introduced meditation technique 1 month daily 30 minutes in early morning for reducing stress. After 1 month again check the level of stress with same scale. The collected data were analyzed through descriptive statistics (Frequency, percentage, standard deviation), and inferential statistics. Result of pre-test score of stress from the 40 total students 12 (30%) having mild stress, 18(45%) were having moderate stress, and the remaining 10 (25%) were having severe stress. Result post-test score of stress from the 40 total students 8(20%) having no stress, 16 (40%) were having mild stress, 13 (232.5%) were having moderate stress and the remaining 3(7.5%) still having severe stress. The data shows in this study that there was a significant reduction in the post test scores. Pre-test score mean was 48.5 and post-test score mean was 37.7. The reduction in stress score is significant (‘t’ = 16.469) for Stress since calculated value is higher than the table value (3.5581) at 0.001% level of significance. Chi-square test was used to check the association and found significant between the pre-test score and variable such as a monthly family income, stay, extra classes and feeling burden.
