Students during Covid – 19; Q&A with Kerdessa Gibson Also published on fundyourcollege.com.
Kerdessa Gibson (She/Her), is a 21-year-old student currently taking her Animal health technology at Lakeland University. Her classes are a mixture of online and in person.
Students During Covid – 19 have more than just a full load to deal with. Students have a full load when they take on school; exams, studying, assignments, extracurricular. They do all this while balancing a healthy life, and a job. Add in the pandemic, and it’s a whole new story.
Please describe how your classes are set up.
I have 2 in-person classes and 1 in-person lab a week and the rest online.
In what ways has the pandemic improved your learning?
I can study at my own pace without the stress of having set deadlines
In what ways has the pandemic made learning harder?
I find it easier to pay attention to important material in class
Are you able to participate in extracurricular activities? If so, what are they?
What advice do you have for other students?
Make sure you schedule time for yourself because with doing work at home it’s easy to forget that you should have a break
How do you think this pandemic would change learning in the future?
I think it’s going to make it harder for kids to be social and learn props in a classroom setting
