Time management for college is like milk for cookies; it’s crucial to an enjoyable experience. All university students have a lot to balance between classes, study time, exams, papers, and sleep. Today’s adult college students are also balancing working full-time jobs, raising families, and balancing a full-time college load.
It’s a lot to do, friend. At times it can feel overwhelming and hopeless, but it isn’t.
While earning my master’s degree and working full-time I experimented with lots of approaches to managing my time. I learned what worked best for me, and more importantly, time management is simply a set of skills and strategies anyone can learn and apply to maximize the results of their efforts.
What does that mean? It means:
- accomplishing a lot from small study sessions.
- never forgetting an assignment or exam again.
- using the Pomodoro for intense focus.
All of these are small tweaks to your approach and new strategies to help you master time management for college. You can stay on top of your commitments (though we need to be critical about the commitments made) and finish what is most important to you. Get started today!
