How are Students Managing with the Return to University_

Now we are about a month into the new academic year, many students have a good idea of what the “new normal” is going to be, at least for the foreseeable future. Which begs the question: how’s it going? Well, the answer depends on who you ask. However, the good news is that many students are managing to make the best of it. Here’s a closer look at the latest news on the current state of student life at colleges and universities around the world, including personal insights from students themselves.

On managing behavior on campus:
In addition to having a spectrum of return plans in place, different schools have different approaches to punishment. While some have no-tolerance rules, others like Seattle University, say they want to work with students rather than punish them.

One way universities are keeping student behaviors in check is threatening them with suspensions and a return to remote instruction. However, not everyone agrees that this is the way to go. “If students are afraid they’re going to get punished, then it’s going to make them less likely to disclose that they have been at risk,” one expert told MarketWatch.

On adjusting to all-remote learning:
Not all universities returned to campus, however. Many remained remote for the start of fall. Others have already been switched from in-class teaching to remote due to campus outbreaks. However, unlike last spring when universities, faculty, staff and students were caught off guard by the shift, all stakeholders have now had time to prepare and to determine best practices. As a result, hopes are high that things will go more smoothly for remote learners.

Certainly, there’s a lot of turmoil in the world right now, and the higher education sector is far from exempt. The good news is the pandemic will not last forever. In the meantime, maintaining a positive outlook can make all the difference when it comes to supporting the best possible experience -- whether you’re on campus, remote or hybrid.

Mantissa College’s BBA program boasts a dynamic global network of more than 80,000 alumni. One recent alumnus, Ms Cathy, says, “I took the 3-years Bachelor of Business Administration course righ after my SPM (O-Level) without needed to go through Foundation or Diploma programme. The syllabus teaches me on the basics elements needed in the business field. The programme also enable me to learn from real people with real problems. Thanks to the diverse and up-to-date programme syllabus, I am now capable of taking up more projects because I had been exposed to a wider perspective on handling matters from my learning experience.”
