Introduction

Hi everyone! My name is Nausheen, and I am a sophomore double majoring in Biology (currently looking to switch into Biomedical Engineering soon!) and Near Eastern studies, along with being in the pre-med program. I still can’t say that in one breath when I’m introducing to myself to others, I have to take a couple. Don’t even get me started on how hard it is to balance, but I love every minute of it and I know that it will pay off. My future goals for myself hopefully are to become successful in the biomedical engineering field and get to be able to create medical devices that better patient treatment and the relationship between a patient and a doctor.

Anyways.

The real reason that I’m here is to talk about StudySoup. If you’ve been in lectures and classes in Wayne State for a couple semesters or so, you may have noticed one of your classmates (sometimes a couple) sending out weekly emails about notes that you can purchase for the week, and sometimes study guides before exams that you forgot about and have to cram for. And they always mention something about ‘StudySoup’, and let’s be honest, being spammed by people is annoying and can get a little irritating.

I was looking for a job when I was a freshman just starting out for college. I wasn’t looking for anything labor-intensive that would take me away from my academics and tire me out very quickly, but I wanted to look for something that would allow me to do my job as a student as well as get money for it. Then I found the flyer for StudySoup. I pretty much signed up right away.

I earned around $520 during my first semester working for StudySoup. Overall for the whole year I earned around $600-something. I used that money to buy the books that I needed as well as other things that I needed for college life. It was glorious. I didn’t think that college students would be so willing to buy my notes but I put effort in my classes and people bought my notes. As far as I was concerned, it was a win-win situation. I worked hard in my classes while I was getting money, more money than I ever really thought I would earn. In the middle of my fall semester I was offered a position as a Campus Mentor and I took that opportunity right away. I ended up getting to know some pretty nice people on StudySoup and really feel like a community. Because that’s what Studysoup really is, a community of sleep-deprived, coffee-powered students just trying to work hard and put our utmost effort in our classes in order to get to wherever we’re trying to go as well as helping out classmates who are also trying to get to that point in their lives too.

Every Elite Notetaker, Campus Ambassador/Mentor, Regional Lead, and everyone else in the StudySoup team are students, just like me. We’re all struggling (except for some special snowflakes that still manage to get 8 hours of sleep a night, come to class acing quizzes and can look totally put together. Please show me your ways) and there’s a sense of relief in that I’m not the only one here. I can go to others for help if I need it. That’s a really good feeling to have when you’re feeling stressed and tired from classes, when you want to give up and just forget about everyone and then remember you aren’t the only person feeling tired.

Sorry, that got deep very fast.

There is a StudySoup Facebook Page (granted it hasn’t been as active as I want it) and since there isn’t a student organization for StudySoup officially listed to my knowledge, I would like to get that done this semester too. There are lots of Elite Notetakers here, but not all of them know each other and know of a Campus Mentor that they can go to. I would like that to change this year.

All in all, I hope everyone has been having a great year so far and finding fulfillment in their studies. Thanks for reading my long post, and I hope you check back again soon! I will be updating this every week, so look forward to some new things every week 🙂
