Making dreams happen during a national pandemic

Making dreams happen during a national pandemic

(Chamberlain, S.D.)–College students across the nation are facing several changes in the pursuit of their post-secondary dreams. St. Joseph’s Indian School alumni Danielle Arpan has seen the effects first-hand and is experiencing the extra stress that an unexpected online curriculum can bring. “The COVID-19 pandemic has not made things easy, but one of the many things that makes a good student is finding ways to adapt to challenges,” said Arpan. Regardless of the trials, she remains optimistic and finds ways to cope while keeping a forwardthinking mind. “My advice for staying motivated, pandemic or not, is manage your time in a way that works for you. There is no right way to study and succeed for all individuals – there is only what works best for you to help YOU succeed,” said Arpan.
