One of the hardest parts of dealing with COVID-19 is isolation. Of course, staying at home is crucial to stemming the spread of the virus, and I think most people are willing to do what it takes to flatten the curve—but humans are social creatures, and being home alone for two weeks (or more) is not something that most of us are built for. So it’s important that we use the technological resources at hand to connect with others, even if from a distance. If you have a regular study group, it’s important that you keep up with it, even in these times. And if a study group isn’t normally your thing your “thing” (I know it was never mine in college), but this might be the perfect time to try something new with your study schedule. Everything else about this semester is new, after all, and maybe a virtual study group is just the thing to shake up your routine. Let’s go over some tips for creating a group and how to use it effectively.
