Spacing out Classes

<p>How do you suggest forming a class schedule for college?
Do you leave a break after every class, or get all of them over with and study for the rest of the day?</p>

<p>The idea of getting classes done early and then studying the rest of the day sounds nice in theory, but in reality for most college students I think this rarely happens (the studying, I mean). But if you're really diligent about it it's possible. </p>

<p>As far as breaks, I think it depends on a few things. It can be really annoying if you have breaks but they are too short and/or the buildings are too far away from your dorm to go back to it in between, and you end up having 3-4 classes spaced out a little but you're stuck away from your dorm or walking around campus the whole time. Some buildings can be a 20-25 minute walk alone from each other. Instead it's probably better to have a class or two back to back, then a break to eat lunch, then your last classes back to back. (or even better, just 1 class on a certain day - it's possible!) </p>

<p>But longer breaks can be really nice too, whether it be to take a nap, finish homework, get some extra studying in before the next class if there's a quiz, eat lunch with a friend without needing to rush, or just have some quiet down time in your room. When I have 3 classes in a day I like to have one in the morning, then have a 2-2.5 hour break for whatever, then have my last 2 pretty close to each other. But it really depends on each person. Most likely freshman year your M/W/F and Tu/Th schedules will be different, and might offer you different approaches. Then you can see which you like best.</p>

<p>Thanks! I will try to finish classes early, and arrange them in pairs</p>
