Students inspire one another in new honours magazine
Children will be able to return to school in the near future, but students from Leiden University are not that fortunate. For the rest of this academic year, they will attend their courses online. To support one another in this period of isolation, honours students have shared their tips and ideas in an online magazine.
In times of social distancing it is difficult to feel connected with other people. To help overcome that, the Honours Academy decided to give its students a platform where they can unleash their creativity and stay in touch with fellow students. The Academy asked students to share how they are coping with the coronavirus period. Students from different programmes responded and their stories have now been brought together in an online magazine.
With such suggestions as a shared playlist, self-written texts and tips for TV series, books and do-it-yourself activities, this virtual magazine has something for everyone. Most of the students have also written a brief motivation, explaining why they decided to share their ideas. Their inputs and the stories behind them can be found on www.honoursmagazine.nl – while quarantine lasts.
