Time to Study!
“The capacity to learn is a gift; the ability to learn is a skill; the willingness to learn is a choice.”
– Brian Herbert, author.
During the day, Urban Scholars Program students are placed in 3 different courses, that are chosen before the Summer Institute begins.
Often times the professors assign homework and students are given about an hour during study hall to complete their assignments. That way they can enjoy their evening without worrying at home after a long day.
This is an image of one of the many Urban Scholars Students completing their assignment, so that she can turn it in for full credit at her next class.
This is another image of two students working together to read a passage and answer questions for their history class. #NothingWorksLikeTeamwork !
However, students are not always given assignments, so during study hall they have time to themselves. This student decided to pull out her sketch book and doodle members of the hit American animated sitcom: The Simpsons. You can also use this time to sit and relax on your phone, watch a movie, or play card games with your friends.
Study Hall is a relaxing period where you can destress and smile or laugh with people who are there for you. In this program, we are all family, blood relative or not. Someone has got your back.
