We’re excited to announce that over the next few months, BestFit will be launching a series of online guides specifically designed to help students navigate college life during an ongoing global pandemic.
For students using BestFit, many of the frustrations around college life have little to do with coursework itself, but with all the other factors surrounding coursework: How do I fit in my classes or office hours between work? How do I take care of my parents/children while being a successful student? How do I do virtual learning if I don’t have stable Internet, a working laptop, or even just headphones that don’t break? How do I ask for help with food and/or mental health support without feeling judged?
