Top 10 Changes To Student Life Since Online Learning Started

The transition to virtual learning hasn’t been easy for everyone. Lockdowns mean dining areas, kitchen counters and bedside tables do double duty as makeshift work stations. Not to mention the added stress for those who also have to share these new workstations with their children. Luckily, we managed to speak to some students who have found their silver lining. Here’s what they’re enjoying most.
  • Pets in lectures. Instructors’ pets. Classmates’ pets. Just all the pets.
  • The updated dress code from the waist down, am I right?
  • Seeing classmates’ and instructors’ home offices, kitchens, dining rooms, bedrooms, etc. and being able to silently judge the decor.
  • The bi-weekly petrol budget has become the bi-weekly beer budget.
  • Commuting to class has quite literally never been easier.
  • Really embracing the whole “I woke up like this” hairstyle.
  • Being entertained by the one classmate who forgets that everyone can see them and does a face mask while eating an entire pizza during a lecture. #lifegoals
  • The proximity to snacks, bed and the toilet has never been better.
  • Realising that no matter how hard it is to focus on learning while being at home with your family, at least you never had to live with Britney Spears’ dad.
  • Revelling in the “smartest person in the room” title.

While we hope that you have found your own silver lining in all of this, we are also hopeful that things will continue to get back to normal as quickly as possible. In the meantime, we know that lockdowns will likely continue to be a part of life for the foreseeable future and we want you to know that we are here to help keep you up and running!
