Hi Zachary! A lot depends on which college you attend, which classes you take, and what you major in. Some colleges have smaller class sizes and require assignments in between each class. Others may have no assignments but one exam at the end. Regardless, it is important to take notes and do the readings in between classes for your own learning and it will help you for midterms/finals so you avoid "cramming." The biggest learning curve is college is figuring out how to do all of the social and extracurricular activities with the work load. It can all be done! It's just a matter of how you balance your time and how effective you are at studying and getting your work done when it is time.
