Mauro - Georgia Southern University | Campus Tour 2019
Virtual Tours by Students
The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
I currently attend Georgia Southern University, where I studied communications. So what defines me as a person and as a student is that I never give up. Yes, I know that sounds so corny, but you'd be surprised how many? How many times I fail and fail and fail and fail. Yeah, never give up, because eventually you'll get it right. We have had to take classes virtually and basically go to school online. At first, I didn't like taking classes online, but at the end of the semester, I looked back and I was a wow. It wasn't really that bad. So I'm gonna tell you guys a day in the life of a virtual college student looked like I went a little like this. You got stuck with zoom meetings so you wouldn't wake up, log into your school's website and join your class zoom meeting. So basically the teacher would send a code and you were joined a zoom leading class. Or you had some teachers that would upload a power point or a video, and you would basically take notes on that video slash power point. Then both of those classes at the end of those classes or video you would have assignments do well worked for me was having an agenda where I could write my schedule, my homework, my test states. This help me stay on top of my classes, And it also gave me time to do other things after class. Like everything else that has its pros and its cons, the first pro is flexibility. You had the ability to juggle your class with stuff you'd like to do after class, like working out, for example, The second pro is reduced costs the third pro is access to online Resource is in the fourth pro of going toe. Online school is not only a pro off going all in school, but if you take this and translate into your everyday life, you will succeed no matter what. So the fourth pro is self discipline, responsibility and self motivation. Some cons were lack of face to face instruction, which is needed for some students. If you didn't have Internet at home, you kind of have to have Internet in order to access power points or join the zoom. For some students, many students also take advantage of on campus. Resource is such as Counselor, my mental health has improved during locked down because I would have a lot of time after class toe work out. If anyone is struggling to cope with mental health, I can't speak for other schools. Georgia Southern has moved all of their councillors online, so you would just have to call make an appointment and they will be meeting with you either through Zoom or however you would like So I just want to say, Don't think you're alone because you're not. There's always somebody willing to help, especially at universities moving forward. I think next semester there will be, ah, higher level of cleanliness along with like precautions and limits to illustrate. I think there would be a certain limit of students who will be able to attend that class on a certain day as well as having toe wear masks and loves. I think it would be a good idea if the school had staff that would clean the classroom before and after each and every single class. I'm hoping schools implement precautions and rules to ensure a safe environment blood. If that's not the case and they can't ensure our safety, then I don't think it's a good idea to go back to school just yet. I think that going online for next semester or next year is not a bad idea. Also this has affected my opportunity to go study abroad next year. I was planning on studying abroad in Europe at Sheffield University in the UK, but due to Cove it, I think I'm gonna have to pass on this opportunity until my senior year. If you want to apply or enroll at Georgia Southern University, just keep in mind that you might be taking classes. So I would apply to a community college just to have a backup school just in case classes are online. Then you could just take classes at your community college instead of having to pay more for classes that everybody has to take your 1st 2 years of university and if you can, what influenced me? Toe. Go to Georgia Southern was to speak to somebody who attends that school. Currently, basically, have a conversation with them. Don't just speak to someone at one university. Speak to someone at every university you're looking at because that can affect your decision on going or not going to that school. If you have any further questions or need advice, or if you have questions on Georgia Southern, I am very happy to help you. So I just wanted to say Don't let this stop you from living life until next time.
