Honestly, I don’t know what I would do without internet, and fast internet! Especially being a college student, I find homework help, organizational tools and educational tips online. Nothing frustrates me more than when I am trying to stream a math-help video and the internet is too slow.
That’s why I am excited to partner with CenturyLink for this post on how to use the internet to help you in college during the back-to-school season! CenturyLink offers one of the fastest and most reliable internet services meaning that those long buffer times will be no more. I have loved my experience with CenturyLink in Salt Lake City. My internet is stable and reliable! I also appreciate that as a 100 year old company, they are dedicated to giving back and investing in the community. But once you have good internet, how do you actually use it to succeed in college? Read on to find my best tips!
College Internet Tips
- Find educational websites that will teach you what you need to know, solidify topics you have learned in class or help you study. A few of my favorites are Khan Academy and Quizlet.
- Don’t let the internet be a distraction. It is definitely good to take breaks from studying but if you are constantly scrolling through Facebook or Twitter, try an app that will block those websites and only allow websites that will help you during study time. Cold Turkey does this.
- Read the news periodically! It is easy in college to become disconnected from the outside world but make sure you are keeping informed with current events. It is important as a young adult to know what is going on in the world.
- Use social media to benefit you. Follow reliable news sources or accounts that have college advice and tips.
- Don’t use websites that write your papers or do assignments for you. First, it’s cheating and most colleges have a zero tolerance policy for this. Second, you are wasting your money having someone else do something that you yourself could do!
- Create inspiration/goal boards. I love creating Pinterest inspiration boards to help me get through rough days in college. I include quotes I love, places I want to visit and things I like to do. When I am feeling down, I scroll through these and am reminded of all the things I want to see and do!
- Start a blog! My blog has definitely helped me succeed in college. It keeps me motivated, it introduces me to awesome people all over the world and it allows me to be creative and constructive.
- There is nothing better than video calling friends and family far away. Having a good internet connection makes this possible without that annoying call drop or fuzzy video quality!
