I commute; Am I excluded from studying with classmates?

As a commuter student, you have a lot on your plate. You have to think about traffic, parking, meals, finding the building your class is in, plus all of the same concerns as other students - going to class, taking good notes, etc.. 


When you’re not on campus all day, it can be difficult to stay after class to get help, get to know your classmates, or form a study group. 


However, that does not mean that you can’t connect. With CircleIn, now you have the opportunity to ask questions, form an online study group and build relationships with your classmates all from your phone or tablet.   


Ask Questions


With CircleIn, it’s simple to post a question and get responses from your classmates.

Because you are able to access the app from home, you are free to ask questions when you need to. 


Additionally, students are able to post notes, which can help you if you’ve missed class, didn’t take good notes or just didn’t understand the material. 


Form an Online Study Group 


CircleIn allows you to start or join a virtual study group to go over the course material, share notes, or quiz each other. The study group has a video feature so that you are able to study either via video conference or via chat. This allows you to study from anywhere at a time that works for you. 


If you feel overwhelmed by a study group, you can also video chat 1-to-1 with another student, so that you feel more comfortable. 


Build Relationships


One of the hardest things for many commuter students is not feeling a part of the campus life - not being in the dorms or participating in campus activities. With CircleIn, you are able to build relationships with the people in your classes after class when you normally wouldn’t have access to them. 


Using CircleIn can’t replace being on campus all day, but it can get you all the benefits of being on campus, without having to share a bathroom with 15 other people.
