Students learn plenty in school, but one crucial skill that generally isn’t part of the curriculum also happens to be one of the most useful for academic success: how to manage their time. With assignments, extra-curricular activities, and even work in some cases, it’s a given that students are busy. The key to juggling multiple responsibilities is proper planning, as Matt Hurd, a student at Wilmington University in New Castle, Delaware, learned with a little help from CampusWell.
“As far as time management goes, I’m working full-time and going to school, so scheduling is important to avoid stress. There are a couple CampusWell articles that helped me a lot,” says Hurd. “I learned the importance of making a visual schedule [i.e. displayed somewhere you’ll see often], and also of scheduling time for yourself—for things that benefit you personally rather than just school and work tasks. I can counteract stress and anxiety by making time for exercise and things that make me happy.”
Hurd’s calendar may be full, but he’s learned some expert tips for getting everything crossed off his to-do list.
“The more condensed an article is, and the more information is packed into a shorter article, the more likely we [students] are to read it and collect that information. We all want to know this helpful information, but some of us—myself included, to be honest—are also looking for convenience.”
Scheduling and time management are just a couple of the targeted topics that CampusWell addresses in its content.
“The topics CampusWell chooses are relevant and focused on people our age—issues like drinking, vaping, stress, and anxiety,” says Hurd. “For people like me that take a few minutes to read [the articles], it really does make a difference in terms of self-awareness and productivity.”
