7 Amazing Youtube Channels for College Students
Being a college student involves a lot of studying. We study for hours and hours. I don't know about you guys, but a general rule of thumb in the colleges and universities in my area is "For every hour in class, you need to study outside of class for 3 hours". That's a lot of time to be flipping through flashcards, reading textbooks, and taking notes. It becomes almost a subconscious thing, and your mind may not be really absorbing what you are studying when you are doing repetitive tasks for hours on end.
Youtube videos are an excellent way to study your material. Not only are they interactive, but they can be entertaining as well. Youtube videos have been a lifeline so far in my college career. Being a Biology major, I have to take a lot of science classes, and although I love almost every field of science out there, sometimes I've ended up with a less-than-great professor. You know the feeling, right?
If you haven't already started using Youtube videos for studying, or are looking for more, I'm here to help direct you to the best ones! These are all Channels that have personally helped me through many of my classes.
