As the new school year starts and campuses flood with new students, the same goal is in everyone’s minds — being prepared for classes and the loads of work that they’re going to receive throughout the year. While it’s a good thing for students to find a great study partner to endure what seems like endless nights in the library, considering the significant other would be both a fun and beneficial way to prepare for an upcoming test, as well as create a closer bond.
Of course, when it comes to studying, there is nothing wrong with mixing business with pleasure — keeping the sessions entertaining but, at the same time, stern, can establish a whole new attitude to learning. Needing to study for that English exam is essential but by spending the additional time together, it is also providing a chance to study each other by seeing how determined he or she can become.
According to CollegeBoard.com, creating small groups is helpful for everyone because there is a given chance to think out loud, share ideas, and learn from one another. Other advantages in creating a small study group include:
- Note-taking reinforcement
- Sharing talents
- Covering more ground
- Having a support system
By following these five main strategies, the beneficial outcome of studying increases — it gives more power to the brain! Besides business, the time spent together as a couple working on something vital together works tremendously. The time doesn’t have to be boring — by doing simple acts, such as getting a cup of coffee together, is a great way to keep the time fun and worthwhile.
Certain places in Philadelphia, such as Love Park, located near 16th and John F. Kennedy Boulevard, can be used as great spot to spend a study session outside of the campus. The calming environment provides more than just a quiet spot, but a romantic one, which is something every couple can appreciate.
