How to Survive being a Student during Coronavirus Outbreak

2020 has been the year where the entire planet as a collective has felt the impact of the coronavirus. The coronavirus or COVID-19 is an infectious disease that causes respiratory illness with symptoms that resemble the flu.

If you are a student that has gone from campus classes to sitting at home all day, here are a few tips for you during this shift:

  1. Follow safety and health Protocols

Following CDC safety guidelines like washing hands with anti-bacterial soap, and practicing social distancing are just some tips to ensuring the virus doesn’t spread. For a complete guideline visit the CDC website and familiarize yourself with steps on how to protect yourself and others.

2. Familiarize yourself with your online classes

Get ready to change your way of learning! Most schools are in the middle of shifting your classes entirely to the Internet. Once that happens, you’ll have to get used to watching lectures, reading PowerPoint’s, discussing work on forums and delivering work all through your computer. Once your teachers provide you with more information on your classes, make sure you know what they’ll be asking for in advance. With this information, you’ll be able to organize your time and prepare yourself for virtual academic success.

Put an alarm on your phone and give yourself an hour or so per class a day. Following Step 2 will make this easier; you’ll know exactly how much work and time you need to put in per class.
