Time saving hacks for college students

Time is of the essence. This holds particularly true for busy college students trying to stay on top of class schedules, deadlines, part-time jobs and their social lives.Ineffective time management is often one reason why students’ grades drop in college, said Patrick Bohn, associate director of the Texas Tech Learning Center.He leads a Programs for Academic Development and Retention class, which teaches study skills to students who fall under a certain grade point average in the previous semester, according to DailytoReador.com.Bohn also said many students struggle with time management in college because they don’t know how to handle their newfound freedom.“Because in high school, a parent or a guardian said, ‘At 3 o’clock, I pick you up, at 4 o’clock, you go to soccer practice. So, everything was scheduled,” he said.“Now they get here, and all they really know is that they’ve signed up for classes, and they should be at those classes. But the rest of the time is completely open. So, a lot of students kind of overindulge in having so much free time that they have never had before.”So how can students use their time wisely and still enjoy a well-rounded college life?Here are some hacks to your daily routine that could save you some precious time. Organisation is key to effective time management. Think of how much precious time you can save if your notes and books are organised, and you don’t need to look up all your deadlines and appointments one by one.
