WELCOME TO COLLEGE!
You’ve walked across the stage, collected your diploma
and spent a summer dreaming of the freedom you’ll enjoy in
college! Congratulations! You’re embarking on a journey
sure to be filled with fun, new friends, new experiences, and
knowledge beyond your dreams.
Some questions you might be asking yourself include:
1. How do I get everything done I need to get done?
2. How do I fit all MY stuff in the room with ALL my
roommate’s stuff?
3. Where’s the cafeteria?
4. Where’s the party?
While all of these questions are of extreme importance,
the one you need to focus on the most is the first one.
At first, you will have more time available to you now
than you will know what to do with. Even if you take a huge
class load, run a marathon a day, start a quilting bee, and
even sleep, I guarantee that you are going to have more
time than you can really believe. It’s maximizing that time
that makes all the difference in succeeding in college or
struggling.
For many college freshmen, this experience can be a
difficult transition. Your parents aren’t around anymore to
make sure you get up for school. You go from being a “big”
senior to a “greenie” freshman again. College is more than
just an excuse to party. It’s a beginning for your adult life.
You will be learning what you need to know to succeed in
the real world. That, alone, can be overwhelming!
But it doesn’t have to be. All you need to do is learn
time management skills along with ways to cope with stress
and maximize your college experience. How do you do that?
It’s not always easy, but it can be easier – with the help of
this valuable guide.
Inside these pages are valuable tips to learn how to
schedule your time effectively, how to stop procrastinating,
how to shut out distractions, and how to manage your
studies and work with your personal life. A huge part of this
experience is stress management, and we’ve provided many
valuable tips and tricks to minimize stress and enjoy the
whole college experience.
We all probably wish that there were more hours in a
day, but since that is impossible, we must make the best
use of the hours that we do have. By utilizing the tips in this
book, you will be on your way to achieving better time
management skills and becoming an all-around better
college student.
It doesn’t matter if you’re an 18 year old freshman
right out of high school, a senior almost ready to graduate,
or a 40 year old returning to classes for the first time in 20
years, these tips can apply to everyone. And, they will
apply to your life after college as well! Learning effective
time management skills makes life much easier and allows
you more and more time for yourself, which is as equally
important.
You deserve to enjoy everything about college life - the
parties, the camaraderie, the fun. You can accomplish this
and not sacrifice the real reason why you’re here – for an
education. We can show you how!
Goal Setting
What are your goals? Really, what are your goals? Do
you want to lose 10 pounds, have shinier hair, land that cute
guy in your Algebra class, or get an “A” in basket weaving?
Goals are important for everyone and identifying them up
front helps you keep your eye on the prize.
Why set goals? Life is tremendously varied. At any
given moment, there are thousands of things you could do.
When you're driving, you could turn left, turn right, speed
up, slam on the brakes, stop for lunch, stop for gas, decide
to drive to Alaska to see what Kodiak bears look like, and on
and on. But what is it that keeps you from ending up in
Alaska every time you get into your car? Why don't you end
up at random locations all the time? The answer is that you
got into your car with a clear idea of where you wanted to
go. You knew at the beginning.
Life is the same way. If you know at the beginning...
