Time management advice for college?
I’m going to be a freshman this year and I can’t figure out how I’m going to manage my time. I want to have a fun college experience and make friends, but obviously I also need to find the time to work and study. I’ll be doing 18 credit hours. I also have a spot on my schools dance team, and I didn’t realize how big of a time commitment it was going to be. I’m scared I might not be able to get a job if I do it, because there are also tons of practices and games that I’ll have to be attending for that. I’m not sure if I should quit though, because I love doing it. I was also offered two different off campus jobs, and I have an interview for an on campus job, and all of them are related to my major so I don’t know how I’ll choose between them or if I’ll even have time for any of them. I have to work to afford tuition though. I also would like to join clubs or a sorority, but don’t know if I’ll have time for that either. I have no idea what to do. I guess basically my problem is that there’s so much that I want to do this year and no way that I can do all of it. How am I supposed to decide what to do? What’s the most important? How do people actually manage their time in college?4 replies
