☁️ 4 Ways to Excel in Summer College Classes ☁️
We've got some extra tips on how to excel in condensed
summer courses in university!
Every student gets stressed when condensed summer courses come around for many reasons. However, we got you covered with extra tips to help you on your university journey to success! Here are a few basic considerations to help maximize your productivity in your summer college courses.
It is a common occurrence when summer classes are taught by teaching assistants or adjuncts on short-term contracts. Before you enrol in a course, check the department website to see if the instructor is a full or associate professor. You could also check RatemyProf to see if they are your institution’s professor on a long-term basis. You may find that an adjunct with experience and passion teaching a given course is the best possible scenario. If there are limited options for possible instructors, maybe it’s time to find tutors who’ve taken the course before!
According to this Stanford study by Quartz, students were asked to identify all the available resources that they would use to study effectively for their classes. You should consider all the resources that are available to you, like:
Textbook websites, programs etc.
Sites like Quizlet
Outside review with your teacher
Once you compile a list of each resource and how you will use it, write it down as your personal study plan. Studying in the summer can be extremely overwhelming, but writing tutors can help with and handle all kinds of assignments.
Picture this. The FOMO is intense and the heat is raging. You just want to go outside and enjoy the sun, but you have stay inside studying. Obviously, your friends have different plans than you do. Instead of stressing over the FOMO, you’ll be more productive and motivated once you take a break. You could take a 15-minute nap, go for a jog, watch a movie with your friends, or you could get a tutor to help with your writer’s block.
This may seem like a no-brainer. However, condensed, six-hour summer classes may very well cover a week’s worth of material in a regular semester. It’s no big deal for a student to miss a few days here and there in the regular school year, but it’s a whole other story in the summer. The sunny weather on top of the endless parties make studying such a drag. The one thing to do in this situation is to prioritize your time and schedule all appointments outside of class hours if possible.
