Hi, David.

A good way to organize and manage your time in college is to have a good planner. In your planner, you can budget out time for assignments, studying, extracurriculars, personal life and etc. I would also advise you to try to leave some time in your planner that is unallocated and also plan to complete assignments ahead of time. This is so that you can handle anything that may come up at the last minute (e.g., an event you want to attend, extra credit assignment, etc).

Patrick’s Answer

Developing time management skills is essential to college life. Plan for the things you know are going to happen, but don't forget to plan for those things you didn't know about ahead of time. There are a lot of methods to manage time. Don't be afraid to try out as many as you want until you find the method that works for you. You will want to make sure you stick to that plan as well. If you don't develop the habit of studying, attending class, doing school work, and of course still having fun on a schedule, you'll find yourself up against due dates that are now more stressful than they could have been. In relation to technology learning, my #1 advice is to not stop learning. Technology changes all the time, so don't just get through school and hope that that education is going to always remain relevant.

Kori’s Answer

Hi David! I have gathered a lot of tips to help with time management throughout college and graduate school. Some of my favorites include:
1. The 2 Minute Rule: If a task takes 2 minutes or less, like emailing your advisor or doing the dishes, then just do it. You'll waste more time procrastinating than getting the job done.
2. For many students, getting motivation can be a struggle, especially when school work gets overwhelming. Sometimes committing yourself to work on projects for just 5 minutes (you can set a timer if you would like) can be an effective way to overcome that motivation barrier, and you'll find you can accomplish assignments more quickly than if you put them off to the last minute
3. Lastly, prioritize self-care. It can be easy to believe that pushing through and working non-stop is the best way to get things done. However, setting aside time for going to the gym, getting fresh air, and getting enough sleep truly does make you work more efficiently and a more balanced individual overall.

Thanks for asking!

Angela’s Answer

Hi! A great way to figure out, plan and manage your schedule in college is to first start with your class schedule. Make sure you create a reasonable class schedule that works for you (you may learn along the way but make sure you're realistic in this, so you can attend all of your classes). Keep your studying hours in mind as well. Lastly, make sure you add in time to spend with friends and on campus! Whether you join any social clubs or not, you will make friends and you'll want to hang out with them. It's important to make priority for your social life in college - that's one of the most exciting parts of being in college!

Nathan’s Answer

I always would go a week or two into a new semester to get a feel of the class work I needed for each class, then make a plan on what I was going to do each week. It would stay pretty much the same, depending on how much work was due for a class that week. Create folders on your computer for each class and save everything in it’s respected folder.
