  • Preparing for college, many of us hear about time management.

  • We hear advice like make checklists, keep a schedule, practice good study habits yada yada yawn.

  • Sure, all the suggestions are helpful but they're just a piece of the time management plan and they don't fit everyone.

  • Manage your time and schoolwork will be easier?

  • It sounds good.

  • The reality? It's been easy getting by without a plan.

  • But further we move in our education, the higher the stakes.

  • We are betting that we could meet our GPA goals without healthy study habits.

  • Classes get harder and you may find yourself drowning in challenging coursework and you never bothered learning (to learn) how to swim.

  • How to form good study habits?

  • First, stop comparing yourself to your friends.

  • Think they get good grades without studying? Nope.

  • You need to find out what works for you.

  • And cramming like a hibernated chipmunk is not the solution.

  • So, where to begin? Know thyself.

  • There is no magic bullet for finding the right routine.

  • First thing you need to learn is how you learn.

  • Prioritization is key, and it's an easy first step.

  • Create a list of activities that occupy your time and rank them from highest to lowest priority.

  • From there you can begin managing your time.

  • You are responsible for your success in college.

  • Chances are your friends aren't looking out for your grades.

  • If you want to hang out, you have to decide, do you actually have time or do you have schoolwork.

  • Start now!

  • You may not have a perfect system and systems can change, that's perfectly fine.

  • The more you learn now about how you learn, the easier things will be.

  • Halfway through semester and unhappy with your grades?

  • Ouch--that's a tough time to change a game plan.

  • Plan early and spare yourself the grief.

  • We've got good news, all around campus are people who can help you understand how you learn.

  • Literally, there are resources all over campus designed to help you.

  • Office hours provide insight for tackling a class head on.

  • Learning centers help with all subjects and all course levels.

  • Scheduled meeting times with supportive peers.

  • This is a surefire way to ensure accountability.
