Introduction: Everyone is under stress at some times in their lives, which is an uncomfortable situation that affects our sense of well-being and quality of life. Aim and Objectives: The present study was done to identify the main sources among students of stress, discover their coping strategies during stress, and how they overcome stress. Materials and Methods: This descriptive, cross-sectional study was conducted at Dr. RRK Dental College and Hospital, Akola. A total of 339 students were asked using a self-structured questionnaire. Results: While asking the information about stress, it was found that 75.9% of students were having stress in their life. Nearly 58.4% of students consider study-related stress as the main reason, followed by educational stress (15.8%). Around 79.3% of the students felt fatigue when exposed to stress. The students (86.1%) were finding difficult to concentrate on day-to-day life under stressful conditions. Nearly 75% of students felt anxiety and restlessness during stress. Conclusions: We found that students were exposed to stress, and academic or study-related stress was the main reason.
