The adjustment to online learning can be a tough one. You have to learn about new technological platforms, master different methods of virtual communication and manage your time outside of a traditional class structure. It took me way longer than I would like to admit to figure out Zoom and I am still trying to figure how to manage my workload. It can feel overwhelming and isolating, but there are plenty of resources out there to help with a smooth transition.

Now that I am a senior at Binghamton, I can say that I have spent most of my undergraduate career studying on the second floor of Bartle. Once I found my perfect study spot, it really helped improve my study habits. While the coronavirus pandemic has affected some study spaces on campus, I went looking for those that are still available to students. If you’re still on the search for your spot or need a new place to study, here are some great places both on and off campus!

I’ve been tested for COVID-19 testing three times since I came to Binghamton University’s campus this year. Once during move-in, once because I was exhibiting symptoms and another time for surveillance testing. While getting a COVID-19 test isn’t the highlight of anyone’s day, especially when you’re trying to balance schoolwork, extracurriculars and a social life during these crazy times, nothing compares to the relief you feel when you get a negative result back.
There are a few different ways to get tested on campus, so if you’re not really aware of the differences, it can all seem pretty overwhelming (and honestly, a little scary!). Since I’ve been tested a few times, I thought I’d write about what I went through to hopefully help you get through it a little easier. Here’s a pretty basic overview of the process.

If you ask me, fall is the superior season. There’s cooler weather, the leaves change color and there’s plenty of pumpkin-spice treats. With art exhibitions, corn mazes and food, there is something for everyone. Fall festivities might look a little different this year, but there are still plenty of ways to have fun!

With the COVID-19 pandemic affecting the campus community and beyond, we wanted to bring people together in a safe and fun manner, as well as encourage mask wearing. We asked students to wear their most creative masks and get their photo taken for our #MaskUpBing Contest. From tie-dye to dragonflies, Binghamton students didn’t disappoint with their creativity and concern for the health and safety of others. Vote your favorite on any of our social platforms!
