College During Quarantine: Advantage or Disadvantage?

Yes, college is back from the longest summer break ever. And it’s not the same. Some colleges won’t be able to open their doors this fall. More fortunate universities are opening but under unusual circumstances. For college freshmen, their first taste of the college experience will not be what they’ve dreamed. And for returning students, they may wonder if staying is worth it. Bold Business hosts David Grasso and Julia Sun discuss the advantages and disadvantages for college students during the pandemic.

Disadvantages

  • Universities are closing campuses after students already moved in. UNC Chapel Hill moved entirely online after the first week of in-person classes.
  • Some students have majors that rely heavily on in-person experiences. Under typical circumstances, these students would need access to laboratories and more.
  • Some of the producers at Bold TV found that choosing their schedules was difficult. Classes were closing, re-opening, going online, and changing times, making it difficult to solidify their plans.
  • Some colleges are putting their students into a two-week bubble when they arrive on campus. Can you imagine your first week away from home, and you’re stuck in your dorm?

Advantages

  • Some students learn better when classes are online because they can go at their own pace.
  • With virtual instruction, students may have time for a side job to help pay their bills or rent.
  • With universities changing so much, students may find it easier and cheaper to stay home and take classes at a local community college.

 

What do you think? Could there be more advantages for college students? Or are there too many negatives? Should they take a break from their education? Let us know in the comments below. And for more information on the state of colleges this academic year, check this out.
