TIPS FOR COLLEGE STUDENTS DURING THE CORONAVIRUS
Embrace the Change
Most of us have daily routines that we know and love, such as getting up at the same time every day, going to the gym after classes, and meeting our friends for a coffee break. However, now that most colleges have shut their campuses down and shifted to online learning, these routines have been broken.
Kent’s Best Apartments recommends that you embrace the change. First, those students who lived on campus are now being forced to return home to learn. While this may be challenging financially, it can be a boon. You are probably more comfortable at home. Your family dog or cat may be at home. Your friends from high school may be around. You can reconnect with your local community after having been away.
Next, learning online has its advantages. You can usually watch the recorded classes when you want, so if you are an early bird, you can begin at 6 am or a night-owl, at 10 pm. You can go to class in your pajamas. You can get up and use the restroom conveniently and grab a snack out of the fridge. You can even text while the lecture is going on without having to feel guilty about doing so. The advantages to online learning are immense; embrace them, and you may learn you love online learning!
Catch Up On Reading — For Fun
Because the reading for college-level courses can be intense, especially if you are in an English-based or foreign-language based major, many college students give up reading for pleasure during the academic year. Now that you are at home more and not hanging out with friends as much, you will have more time to read. Kent’s Best Apartments recommends that you hop online and order some of those novels you have been putting off reading.
Do Puzzles & Play Games
Puzzles are a great way to keep your mind mentally stimulated, especially while you are stuck at home during the coronavirus. You can either do a jigsaw puzzle, Sudoku, or find online puzzles to play. Similarly, you can play card games, either with your family and friends or by yourself.
Catch Up On Netflix
As a busy college student, you probably aren’t watching as many shows as you would normally be. When you’re in your home during the coronavirus outbreak, you now have the opportunity to catch up on your favorite shows and movies.
