I found that studying at a regular time every week helps a lot. The atmosphere and the facilitator were also extremely helpful. The reminder to set consistent and regular goals was important. It was a great experience for me: I found the Study Hubs a very useful space.
Meeting with [a learning strategist] got me started on scheduling my study/writing into 4-hour blocks throughout the day, with breaks. I found this strategy really helpful. I set attainable but ambitious goals and focused during those 4 hours on getting that chunk of work done, not stressing about all the other things I have going on.
Prior to university, I had never considered studying in a group to yield productive results….In spite of this, I wanted to find ways to be involved, and so I decided I would go and see what a Study Hub would be like. I discovered that being a part of a group setting may be more effective than studying alone on certain occasions. The Study Hubs facilitated my ability to finish coursework, and also ended up becoming a mentorship experience that made my first year at university more enjoyable.
