Students reported a high level of outside pressures including work and family. Many students work numerous hours at off campus jobs. 93% of students we interviewed are full time students, but 43% work more than 15 hours a week.
Several students shared about locations that they study off campus. This is logical given that 43% of students we surveyed were commuter students.
In addition to studying off campus, students seemed to largely prefer studying by themselves versus with groups or friends.
36% of students mentioned the chapel’s importance to them. “My favorite part about campus is the Chapel.” A “comfortable space, you feel like you belong.”
Most students mentioned taking notes primarily by pen and pencil instead of typing on a device, even though many students referenced laptops and tablets. Additionally, many students shared that they used a traditional planner for their time management.
