As usual, I always provide a motivational quote at the beginning of each of my posts.
“Strength, to conquer what life may bring. Hope, to believe that you can. And courage, to take this first step, and to keep going.”
This quote that I found is so perfect for today’s post. I know as a student attending “Zoom Academy” classes can seem daunting and confusing. But it’s through a determination that we make it through. If you ever get lost, confused, or feel like you are getting left behind always speak up! Here are some things you can do to feel connected to Montgomery College during this difficult time, especially as a new student!
Join A Club! – There are so many offered at MC! Go take a look at our student life page!
Go To Office Hours! – This is so important! Make sure you take the time to get to know your professor and ask them questions when you feel lost.
Read The Syllabus! – Also super important! Make sure you take the time to read the syllabus! Write down all your due dates for each class. It really does help.
Meet Other Students! – Meet other students in your class! Try to take the time to speak up in zoom classes or create a group-me where you guys can ask questions and discuss. It really does help!
Take It One Day A Time! – At the end of the day. Be patient. With yourself, your classmates, and teachers. We are all trying t0 navigate this the best way we can! Be patient! Have gratitude for the classes and learning new material. It won’t be like this forever.
I believe in each and every one of you! We got this! WE CAN CONQUER ZOOM ACADEMY. *in all seriousness, y’all got this*
