You’ve graduated and decided to take the next step in your education: grad school. Sometimes it can be difficult to set the pace or organize yourself but the good thing is there are plenty of online resources to help you navigate this next adventure.
One of those resources is “studygram”—an Instagram community of students who help each other by sharing their experiences and showcasing the good and the bad. Some examples include Instagram pages like @kermitkritterstudies and @studywithara.
The main objective of their Instagram accounts is to provide tools to students so they can improve their studying habits, talk about topics ranging from improving grades, self-care, and combating stress, and even give insight into their activities outside of school and how to achieve a good work/life balance.
Within studygram, students can find a community of other students providing their insights with information on just about anything. Most of the time, people in this community have lots of years of school under their belt which can be useful for grad students.
Pages like these can help students become organized and learn from the experiences they discuss. They share helpful resources such as websites, Google Chrome extensions, applications that help with school, study tips, schedules and more!
A few websites recommended by @studywithara:
- Pitch.com – for presentations
- Scribehow.com – for making guides about anything such as how to create an Excel sheet, how to navigate Zoom and even how to make your LinkedIn page look better
- Ratemyprofessor.com – to look at reviews of professors
Google extensions that are useful provided by @kermitkritterstudies:
- Power Thesaurus – useful for when you overuse a word and need something different
- Grammarly – useful for correcting your papers through grammar and sentence structure
- Bitly – useful for shortening links to pages when needed
