Be a Master of Time Management
One big difference between high school and college is how you managed your time.
When chatting with college students, the biggest difference they found between high school and college was how they managed their time. So what’s the difference between the two? In high school, students noted that everything was structured for them - from school, sports, studying - someone was always there to ensure they were always on task. Plus, their schedules were jammed packed with all the aforementioned duties; they always had something going on. When they get to college, students often find that they have more
unstructured time and are unsure how to handle this new found independence.
It’s important for all students to prioritize their studies and not fall into the trap that when there is free time, that means Netflix and chill. No joke.
