Summertime: Creating Distraction Free Study Zones

July 26, 2020

With so much going on in the world, it will be a real challenge for students to stay focused on study when classes return this fall. Some classes will be online. In-person classes will require new public health pre-cautions. Spaces will not be available for larger groups. Sports and other events will not be the same. Family and friends make be affected by COVID-19. And, students still have to take classes. This special episode highlights a panel of student leaders who we asked to share academic advice on staying focused and making distraction free zones that students can think about before classes start. Our student panel consists of Ms. Jamie Turner (a recent May 2020 graduate from Virginia), Ms. Symone Thomas (a current senior from Texas) and Ms.Serenity Magee (a current sophomore from North Carolina). Make sure to tune in for their tips, tools and takes on what works.
