Words of Advice — Student Perspective on Organizing for SuccessJul 9th, 2012 | By cherrymi | Category: FEATURED ARTICLES, Meet Our Students, STUDENTS
How do you juggle home life, work life and school life?
“It takes a lot of planning, organization and commitment. I have an agenda that I carry around everywhere. In the agenda, I prioritize tasks I have to complete every day and I try to plan one week in advance. I schedule my study time and share the schedule with my family. This helps them understand when I need to be left alone to study. I also take advantage of electronics as much as possible. If available, I read my textbooks on an e-Reader while commuting on a train to/from downtown Chicago. On my lunch hour, I prepare homework on a laptop and then in the evenings after dinner, exercise and kid activities, I spend reviewing school work. Weekends I try to get ahead with homework and prepare the week’s schedule”.
