College helps student motivation

By Staff Editorial

Many students who struggle with staying motivated look to online sources for words of encouragement. 

The Internet is filled with websites offering positive words of encouragement for those who may be struggling. Kirkwood Community College offers its own version of this each Monday with #MondayMotivation on Facebook.

Time management is extremely important for students looking to stay motivated. Not taking on too many responsibilities can prevent students from getting overwhelmed.

Setting goals can be particularly beneficial to those struggling with staying motivated. Having a set plan to stick to and work toward can allow students to think ahead and can prevent the stress of last minute tasks. Charting progress in this way allows students to be held accountable for tasks they do not complete when working toward their goals.

It is also important to remember that assistance is available if life become too overwhelming. There are many online resources available complete with tips for those who may be struggling to stay motivated and focused on the tasks at hand. 

Now that spring break is over many students are busy working on final projects and will soon be preparing for final exams. Staying motivated with the college’s #Monday Motivation quotes is one way to stay on track as the end of the semester approaches. 

There are additional resources on campus as well. Students can also talk with guidance counselors on campus Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. No appointment is necessary, students can simply walk into the office. 

The offic is located in 108 Iowa Hall on the Cedar Rapids campus or the One Stop office on the Iowa City campus. For more information, students can go online to kirkwood.edu/counseling.
