Work-study job? Classes? Sports? Clubs? How can it all be managed? There just simply aren’t enough hours in the day when you’re a busy college student. While everyone has obligations to academics and their social life, stay conscious of when there is enough on your plate. It’s easy to spread yourself too thin when you get involved around campus on top of taking classes, but still try to get out there and do other things besides just hitting the books. A good plan for freshman year is to get your feelers out for the campus, take the introductory classes, join a student-run organization, and if you can manage a job that’s not a bad idea either. Remember where your priorities are though, maybe sacrifice a Friday night out to take a shift at work or pass up the vice president position to focus on your studies. College is a place to grow as an individual, not to become overworked and stressed with all the small stuff. Knowing what you can handle is important when trying to juggle college life, which will be rewarding if managed properly.
