How do I enjoy college while also getting a higher education?

I am bowling in college, but I am also going to become a math teacher after college. I want to enjoy college, but it will be busy. I would like to know how to do both at the same time. #college #time-management #teaching

Angie’s Answer

One way to help balance your responsibilities is to develop some project management skills. Get a large calendar/planner and put in your key dates for exams and projects for each course as soon as you get the syllabus. Add practice/event time for any teams you're on and your work schedule, if you're working. Now block some study/homework time so you'll know exactly when you'll be doing the homework for each course.

The other thing is to think of school as your full-time time. That's typically 40 hours a week. Don't fall into the trap of thinking that the time you go to class is your only commitment to school. (taking it easy on the late nights during the week also helps)

You'll adjust it a bit as you go on, but once you've locked in your responsibilities, you'll find there's plenty of time for the fun!

I'd start by creating some form of organization that works for you. At the beginning of each week, block off some time to see what's coming within the week and make sure to set priorities. Include personal/fun things as well as schoolwork and athletics. It's crucial to have a balance of both so you can continue to be your best self everyday!
