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.
