Hello. You will manage just as you have in high school. One thing that differs from high school when transitioning into college is, in college you have to be self-disciplined. The professors will give you an assignment but usually not keep reminding you, as well as, your parents will not be around to ask if you have homework or not. In college there is more freedom, therefore, you have to set your boundaries as to when you study, hang out, etc. Keep in mind that time management is very important. Decide whether you are a visual person or things can be managed electronically, then record or write what needs to be done as soon as you are aware. There are times when circumstances arise and you cannot always follow through but it is up to YOU to reorganize. Always remember...professors are not as lenient and open to other options as your high school teachers. Professors mean no harm but are simply preparing you for the real world upon graduating.


It will work out...just make sure, if possible, you set time aside on specific days. Pretend it is an important exam and study even if you do not have anything due. This will make it easier when the time has come and you are not cramming all at once. Also, you never know if you may feel ill and your mind is not up to par on studying. This way you already have the bulk of what is needed stored in memory.


Hope this helps!!

<span style="background-color: transparent;">You have to set a routine for yourself and stick to it for the most part. Once you get into the groove of a routine it will be much easier for you to manage your time and have enough time for everything you need to do (including relaxing). Make yourself to-do lists on a weekly basis, use Google calendar or a planner to keep track of events, deadlines, and due dates. In addition to setting a routine and sticking to it, plan out relaxing activities into your day. Or set aside a time, after everything is done for the day, that you can have "me" time. I have also personally found it essential to not only find time for myself but also make use of that time in a way that is best for me and my holistic wellness. I have found the HeadSpace app to be an essential tool in helping me relax and generally feel more relaxed throughout the day, Guided meditation, even if you have a busy schedule, will make you feel more at ease and relaxed throughout the day as a whole (not just when you have the time to relax and focus on that "me" time).</span>

Yes, college is much more difficult than highschool!
I never learned any shortcuts for studying.
What I did was this.
Read the chapter prior to the lecture. If the presentation is posted on-line, review it.
Take notes during the lecture, EVEN IF you have a power point presentation and the instructor posts the presentation. Writing it down helps you to remember it.
Sometime prior to the next class, type up or rewrite your notes (I had to do this because my handwriting was bad, but, it also helps to reinforce what you learned.) Re-read the chapter, and highlight those things that you think you will need to review again for the exam.


Exams: review notes and highlights. If there is a class with a lot of vocabulary, make flashcards.
Form study groups, and discuss the material.
Get a good night's sleep. Eat breakfast.


best of luck!
