Time Management

As a college student, one of the most important thing to know how to do is manage your time wisely! There are many different techniques to use. The trick is to find the one that suits you the best. Though it does not matter which technique you use, it is imperative that you find a method and stick to it! Without a time management technique you do not have anything to keep you on track. Once you decide upon a technique that works for you, it is very important that you stick to it as closely as possible, so that it becomes a habit, and makes getting school work done a regular routine!


Here are just a few techniques that work for people I know:

  • Print off ALL syllabi and keep them in a folder that you can easily access throughout the semester (preferably, keep it in your book bag).
  • Go through syllabi in the beginning of each semester and write ALL due dates on your calendar, or in a planner.
  • Make a to do list on sticky notes or a marker board that you will see every time you enter your room.
  • Complete as much work as possible as soon as you receive it.
  • Read all assignments during the appointed time, so that you do not become overwhelmed before a test.
  • Do your work all along to minimize test stress.
  • NEVER wait until the last minute!
  • Check your email multiple times a day for important schedule changes and updates.
