Heading to College in 2020—4 Students Share Their Thoughts on the New College Experience

Welcome to a new era of learning. For everyone. One of the groups most impacted by all this craziness is college-age kids. Some college students are going to class live on campus. Some college students are virtual from home. And some college-students are literally on campus but going to school virtually or doing a hybrid. In this “Back to College” episode, I’m talking with 4-college kids starting their freshman year in colleges across the country during these unprecedented times.

Specifically, I ask these four students (Brenna Pangelinan, Mike McGibney, Grant Norberg, and Kira Corasanti) an array of questions:

  • What’s your mindset as you go off to college?
  • What’s the secret to helping you get through high school & now the first semester of college successfully?
  • How do you “Get Your Mind Right” now during this pandemic?
  • Any advice for younger students (elementary, middle, or high-school) to get through this crazy time?

Tune-in and enjoy this conversation. Furthermore, please share it with other parents who have college-age kids or younger. And please share this episode on your FB or IG and tag me @ToddDurkin and our podcast guests on your IG.

And as always, huge prayers for ALL of our students of all ages and levels. In addition, big shoutout to all teachers, instructors, and professors who are finding a way to teach and instruct in a new way these days!
