Video: Staying Healthy While at School

With all the germs going around schools, it can be hard to stay healthy. Here are some tips from student vlogger Jordan-Paige to help you avoid getting sick.

It’s easy for germs and sicknesses to spread at schools with students packed in classrooms together, especially during the winter. If you aren’t learning remotely and are attending class in person, you need to make sure you’re taking precautions (especially now with COVID-19) to make sure you stay healthy. Check out these tips from student vlogger Jordan-Paige to learn how she stays healthy while surrounded by other students. 

How to stay healthy at school

Keeping yourself healthy may seem like a no-brainer, but sometimes we forget about the simple things we can do to prevent sickness. After all, we don’t often think about getting sick until we’re already there. Here are some preventative measure you can take in your day-to-day life to avoid getting sick:

  • Take your vitamins
  • Drink tea to help your immune system and anxiety
  • Use hand sanitizer
  • Use a face mask if you’re sick or in public (whether it’s COVID-19 or a cold, wearing a mask can help yourself and others stay healthy)
  • Get plenty of rest and sleep
  • Find ways to manage your stress levels
  • Don’t drink other people’s drinks
  • Wash your hands

Sometimes we can’t prevent illness altogether, and you may catch a cold or stomach bug here or there—but by taking these steps, you’re less likely to catch something, and you can help slow the spread of sickness to others. Right now, it’s more important than ever to be cautious when it comes to spreading germs, especially in classrooms. Stay healthy!

CollegeXpress helped me overcome a huge hurdle. Because of the small town I live in, I felt like I would never achieve more. I felt like I could never go beyond because of costs. I feared I wouldn’t be able to find scholarships. I had no idea of where to start. With CollegeXpress, I easily found scholarships—they came to me. It was a helper, and I was instantly matched with opportunities to go above and beyond educationally.

It's an honor for me to be writing to share a little about my experience with CollegeXpress. I've been using CollegeXpress for about a year now, and the reason why I chose it is because it provides astonishing scholarships for every student around the globe. Besides that, this organization dispenses all the information necessary to help students get to college. CollegeXpress has helped me have an easier experience with applying to colleges and choosing the best fit for myself.

CollegeXpress has helped me with the college application process. The tips and tricks for important essays were so helpful. I also gained useful knowledge about college life. Even though I’m fully online, CollegeXpress has helped me develop a sense of how college is in person. The experiences from college students that were featured on their Instagram page have shown the good, the bad, and the “secret” life on campus from a reliable perspective. Not to mention, they relieved my feelings of anxiety about the workload. I can now understand how it can be stressful, but it takes self-control and willpower to get assignments completed on time and with quality.

I wanted a school that wasn't too far away from home and could provide me with a full-ride scholarship. CollegeXpress helped me put into perspective the money I had to pay to attend those schools, which ultimately drove me to choose to attend a community college first to get used to being in college before transferring to the University of Michigan–Ann Arbor, one of the colleges I was able to research further on CollegeXpress.

CollegeXpress has helped me look at colleges that fit my interests by taking my profile and matching it to colleges that have the programs I'm looking for. It has the ability to connect me to colleges so I can be contacted by them and look at them more in-depth to find what's right for me. Additionally, the scholarship database is super beneficial for getting scholarships for college. Not only does it help lift the financial burden of college but it shows all the opportunities available. Overall, CollegeXpress has been very helpful to me.
