5. Remember Why You’re There
Part of putting together a schedule and setting priorities is knowing what those priorities are. Remember, you’re in college to get an education, broaden your knowledge base, expand your professional skill sets, and ultimately, make yourself a more viable and attractive job candidate. In simple terms, your long-term career should be your priority – everything else comes second. Part-time jobs, hobbies, sports, extracurricular activities, and even personal relationships may need to take a backseat to your first priority, which of course is your schooling. Keeping this in mind can help you focus on what’s important and what’s not.
