My weekly schedule consists of a full class load, extracurricular activities, two jobs, an internship, and I’m a member of a couple student organizations. Many college students have these things on their plate, or any combination of them. We struggle with time management and keeping up with our grades – and we don’t even have an NCAA sport to play! NCAA athletes, without a doubt, are the most crunched for time. You guys also lose privileges to play the sport you love if your grades don’t keep up, so they need to be a huge priority. But how do you know what to prioritize, and when? I’ll cover organizing schoolwork in the best way so that other aspects of your college life, like your sport, don't falter.

Time management is something that most people struggle with. Procrastination is something we have all done at least once or twice. Most people wait until the last minute to do things, which adds a lot of unnecessary stress and can lead to poor work. As a college student, I have found that time management is one of the most important things to master and that once you know how to manage your time, life is a lot less stressful.
College is a fast paced and stressful time for a lot of students. Having to deal with school, homework, studying, team projects, sports, work, ect., makes time management important to a college student. Being a college student myself, I know how time consuming college can be. I work part time, go to school full time, have multiple group projects, and have to deal with everyday activities. My days would feel like they were flying by without any extra time for homework or studying. That's when I decided I needed to do something different to give myself more time for my academics. These are some things I do differently to give myself more time.
