This week's advice is similar to some advice I gave last semester because it is such a tricky topic for most people (in or out of college)... time Management -yikes!
Studying for 5 hours straight beginning at midnight is more beneficial as a torture method than a studying tactic. Pick a dead hour or two in the middle of the day to designate as “study time” instead of wandering around campus looking for snacks. (I get it, this is tempting.) Either use this time to get a head start on homework, or if you’re feeling ambitious, take a look at upcoming lessons so that when the professor describes them in class, you’re able to build on that framework.
This may not seem like a lot of time, but when it replaces your precious evening time that could be used for the fun experiences college life has to offer, it can be a game changer. This might mean reducing three and a half hours of homework each night to two gap hours spent studying on campus and an hour with a tutor in the evenings. These shorter periods are much easier to swallow and much more productive for those who have trouble focusing. Don’t let math or physics take over your high school or college life and don't let it slow you from getting that Purdue FYE degree!
