As the spring semester moves to an end the weather gets better, some students might try to find any reason not to do work. Things can get tricky and the workload can become difficult, but on the Sacramento City College campus, many students take measures toward lightening the load and making life easier.
Amber Murphy, 20 and Sarah Levi, 19, for example, spend Saturday mornings together studying different subjects. Murphy is better at math than Levi, while Levi is better at English and political science. “We met last year and started studying together,” Murphy says. “We’re both better at different subjects and I figure that two heads are better than one when you have a problem.”
Murphy and Levi spend four or five hours together every weekend doing homework. They both consider themselves good students, but Levi says that she wasn’t always a good student and she’s had to work at it.
