Why Should I Join a session?

Join a live stream while you are working on your coursework or studying for tests/exams. Treat it like a study buddy! 

“Study with Pima” live stream sessions offer a way for PCC students to not feel so alone when studying from home. The sessions are between 1 1/2 to 2 hours and use the Pomodoro Technique. The Pomodoro Technique follows a schedule of studying for 25 minutes and a break for 5 minutes. This can be a healthy way of learning the content without overloading yourself.
