Is study everything to a student’s life?

Updated: Oct 10, 2023



This is a common issue a student faces at least once in their lives. In my belief, study isn't really helpful without it combined with other things, I would recommend students to do everything, and as scientific study says, playing or various other activities out of the study environment affects a students body positively making the mind sharper by reportedly a hormone which the body secretes only when we have fun. This doesn’t stop here, there are many more reasons to this and as a student myself I can testify, participating outside the classroom can have a significant impact on a student's education. Extracurricular activities such as volunteering, internships, and clubs can provide students with opportunities to gain real-world experience, develop soft skills, and explore their passions.

For example, during my undergraduate studies, I joined a student-led research group, which focused on daily life problem identification/problem solving and making our possible solutions a reality, which then interested me. We met weekly to discuss and plan our research projects, sometimes even wander off and talk about our preferences, and we also attended conferences and presented our ideas to others of our interests. Through this experience, I gained valuable research skills and knowledge that I couldn't have learned from just attending lectures and reading textbooks.

However, the benefits of this experience didn't just stop there - I also found that my participation in this group positively impacted my in-classroom learning. I was able to apply particularly the research skills and knowledge I had gained to my coursework and assignments, which made me a more engaged and active learner. Additionally, my participation in this group gave me a sense of purpose and passion for my studies, which motivated me to excel in my classes.

There are many more life experiences I’ve had since and if I would go on I’ll probably make this blog post a thesis of my life, so as a final statement, I think students should explore the many opportunities available to them outside of the classroom. Not only will this positively impact your education and career prospects, but it can also provide a sense of fulfilment and purpose that can enhance your overall well-being. So don't be afraid to step outside your comfort zone and take advantage of all that your school, university or community has to offer.
