We are all greatly influenced by our Instagram and TikTok feeds. With midterm season finally here, we all need students who can provide genuine insight into the reality of student life. They motivate us to dust off our books and engage with those long-neglected classes. Here, we introduce content creators who excel at precisely that – guiding us through our academic journey with inspiration and practical advice.
