Things may feel out-of-control right now. You may be facing a lot of unknowns and disruptions. Try to be patient with yourself, your classmates, and your instructors during this time. Take care of your well-being first. Making a plan and adjusting your studying can help you feel a greater sense of a control. Use this resource as a starting point. In this guide, we'll talk about how you can:
- Stay organized
- Make the most of video lectures
- Set a schedule
- Trade your normal strategies for new ones
- Work with a group or team
- Stay connected to other people.
This will pass. If current events have disrupted your travel plans, ended a lab experiment you were excited about, or for any reason feels like this came at the worst possible time, remember: it is temporary. You will find your way when it settles down. You will get back on track, and things will get back to normal. We don’t know when, but it will happen.
Until then, take a deep breath, do your best, get some rest, and wash your hands.
