studying is difficult.
Those are her words, not ours! Admittedly, studying can become a tedious process but watching her videos can definitely help you get into the mood. studyquill, otherwise known as Jasmine, has taken us on her journey from her freshman year of high school, to college applications to finally becoming a sophomore at UCLA. Viewers have grown alongside her as she discovers the study techniques that work best for her as well as the habits that she, along with many of her subscribers, needs to quit. She provides tips for high schoolers, advice on how students can live a more eco-friendly lifestyle, and adulting tips as she navigates the adult world too!
Just the average life of a college student
Yoora Jung is a Korean-American vlogger who recently graduated with a BS in Neuroscience and behavior from the University of Notre Dame. Yoora offers a realistic and relatable view of her during finals and midterms and how it is not always about the aesthetic pens and notebook spreads. Her journey is a perfect example of how despite the stress and challenges that come with university life, it will all be worth it in the end. Aside from her studies, she also posts about other things in her life such as going to a BTS concert and trying to find an apartment in LA.

Especially as she also juggles a full-time job, Mariana posts about indispensable skills students would need to thrive. Her organizational tips don’t just apply to your planner, but to your mind as well. She regularly posts videos about how to stop procrastinating and overthinking, as well as tips on how to use Notion (a popular note-taking software) to your advantage.
It’s in the name!
Living up to her namesake, Estella Waczewki’s YouTube channel gives students the motivation and tips to study to success! She is most well-known for her stationary hauls and her study-with-me videos. Her study-wth-me videos are hugely popular because they are in real-time, so you can have a study buddy throughout your entire study session (and you get to marvel at an amazing desk set-up). Though she does have a lot of stationary content, she also posts videos about digital note-taking and her iPad set-up. She also has a dedicated playlist for SAT and ACT tips, and even interviewed an MIT student to get the best tips to get into an Ivy League college.
