Time management, a term you may hear a great deal in your college career, but how do you manage your time if you feel like you don’t have any time in the first place? Take a deep breath and try out a few of these simple tips WAEF volunteers, and staff used to help them manage their time in college, and hey, they survived so they must be helpful, right?

1.     Create a to-do list at night for the following day so you can get up and get on it right away. – Hannah Poush.

2.     Edit and add to this to-do list throughout the day so you know what needs to be accomplished. – Kailan Dunn

3.     It is OK to make some sacrifices & prioritize what's most important. It doesn't make you any less successful. –Ruth Ortiz

4.     I recommend getting a planner to help plan your classes and any assignments you have –Talia Barajas.

5.      Go to class and do not procrastinate on assignments!!—Nate Rubio

6.     Get a big desk calendar and color code assignments, tests, and extracurricular activities – Xochitl Velazquez

7.     When studying, reward yourself to keep motivated (example: after finishing X number of chapters or problems, giving yourself a 5 minute break)—Abril Lopez

8.     Say no sometimes! Go out and experience everything you can, but sometimes you will need to say no to make sure you are focusing your attention on high priorities, like your education –Kelsey Martinson

Care packages will be coming your way soon! Please send WAEF your updated address where you will receive your mail at college. It is incredibly important that this address is correct so care packages are not returned. Our volunteers spend a great deal of time putting these together, and it is disappointing when they are returned to them. Look out for an e-mail from Kelsey that requests your address and reply as soon as possible!
