As a college advisor. It's my job to do just that, advise! I enjoy working with students and sharing what has worked for me when I was a student and strategies that have worked for others.
With COVID-19 impacting education and the way many students are learning, I thought it would be beneficial to write and film 10 tips for college students taking online classes.
These tips could work for any student, but when I first came up with the idea for a video, I had college students in mind. I hope students can find these tips useful for semesters to come! Make sure you click the video to watch me elaborate on each tip!
