Question: What’s the relationship between your work load and how much you learn?
Alissa Pietila, Senior, Communication: “If I have so much that I’m overwhelmed, I’m probably not digesting the information in the way that’s going to be beneficial to me in the long run. If you have a lot of work, it’s better if we get an opportunity to discuss it in class.
Kelsey Monette, Junior, Psychology: “The work outside of class definitely helps, because it gives me time to think about the topic on my own and think through it more than taking whatever the professor says and writing down and forgetting about it. I actually have to learn it.”
