As a college student you gain more independence, but, there is less structure for you to follow, you don't have your parents or teachers telling you what needs to be done. Using your unstructured time wisely will be the key to your academic success.
A semester calendar will give you an overview of important dates and deadlines.
How to set up your schedule:
Tip: Use a dry erase 12-month wall calendar to plot out your semester, hang the calendar on a wall by your desk - you will always be reminded of approaching due dates.
A two-week academic planner will give you a detailed picture of each week’s activities on one page.
A prioritized task list will help to keep you focused and organized.
