Victoria Samuel is on track to graduate from Coahoma Community College in December.

The ongoing coronavirus spread has put somewhat of a damper on her last hurrah in Tiger Nation, but she’s trying to make the new normal as comfortable as possible. She stays in the loop primarily through social media.

"I'm adapting pretty well. It's a struggle sometimes," she expressed.

She took online classes during the summer and made time for friends to balance things out.

With long-term goals in mind, the Clarksdale, Mississippi, native and Clarksdale High graduate takes the necessary steps to maintain her health.

"I just wear a mask and don't get so close to my friends or peers," said Samuel, who is studying Early Childhood Education. "I'm staying protected by leaving 6 feet between myself and others, washing my hands, and sanitizing daily."

Samuel decided that the hybrid instructional format would be the best option for her. Half of her courses are entirely online, and half are in-person.

Planning for a dynamic finish at Coahoma, she has come up with a technique for productivity.

"I give every assignment a particular day, so when the due date comes, it will be already completed," Samuel explained. This fall, she is prepared to reach out to her instructors by email if she needs clarity on anything. Her hope is to complete her last semester as a Tiger with an overall 3.0 GPA or higher.

She plans to pursue a bachelor's degree at a university then gain employment as a daycare professional or preschool teacher.

Her formula for a stress-free semester will include finishing assignments through the week and recharging on the weekends.
