In college, I also plan to work and study. How much time does a club take up?, and would I have the time for one? #college #work #club #student-activities

Hey! Making the deacon on whether or not to be in clubs is another step in learning how to manage your time and everyone caters to themselves differently. Its good to assume that for every hour of class, you'll have two hours of homework/studying to do. Most colleges have a minimum on how many hours you must work (if you have a campus job or something like that). Clubs are another way of expanding your social life and don't necessarily require the same level of commitment as classes and work do. I recommend signing up for everything that interests you and seeing if their meeting times work with your schedule. Remember that self care is very important and don't push yourself towards anything that increases your stress levels. Tirsana P.

This is tough to answer to be honest. Your workload for your major, work commitments and what type of club you want to join will all determine the answer here.


However, my suggestion is for you to join a club if you will enjoy the time off from work/school by being involved in it (or to meet new people which will keep you happy/sane). I would also recommend seeking leadership positions as these will help you land internships/full time positions later and develop you personally/professionally.


If you find that the time commitments are too great, consider quitting it, it is very common. We make trade-offs all the time, but I think smartly balancing your work/school commitments with social or community based involvement will add something for your soul which is sometimes more important.
