Did you know that the average student productively uses 128 hours out of the 168 hours in a week? When you’re in college time management can make or break you. Successful students will learn pretty quickly that effective time management strategies can help make college less stressful and more fulfilling.
One such strategy is getting a day planner AND USING IT. Whether you use a physical planner like the ones provided at many college bookstores, or keep track of your time on your google calendar, planning for all your activities in one place is a huge help!
This brings me to the next time management tip: don’t procrastinate! I know, students are sick of hearing this, but it’s still a good piece of advice. Staying on top of your assignments and getting them done early can help you manage your time more effectively, as well as keep your stress levels down.
