Though personal drive, initiative, and self motivation are key to college success, students also experience great benefits when they connect with other students, form solid study groups, and engage in peer-to-peer learning experiences.

In these videos, filmed during Phi Theta Kappa‘s 2014 NerdNation convention, students describe how study groups benefit their college experience. They list the traits of people they’d want to include (or wouldn’t want to include) in their study groups. They also discuss the value of developing a support system and connecting with fellow students on campus.
