5 Tips for College Students To Maximize Study Time

The transition from high school to college can be a challenging one, regardless of how far away you go or how much you enjoy school. Finding tips and tools to help you stay organized and on top of your homework can help smooth the process.

  1. Know Your Style

One of the first things you need to know when figuring out how to organize your homework and classes in college is whether you work best with hard copies of information or digital versions. One is not better than the other.

A system you don’t use won’t help, so pick the method that is best for you rather than the one you feel like you should. If you’re going to come out of college with a degree and student loans, you want to make sure you’re getting everything you can out of your experience.

  1. Use a Planner

Colleges have a lot of ways to help you plan and schedule your time. The college calendar lets you know what events are coming up and course syllabi tell you what assignments are due and when tests are.

As soon as you get an updated calendar or the syllabus for a new course, take the time to update your planner. It’s easy to put this off but that defeats the purpose of having a planner.

  1. Create a Schedule

To some people this sounds like a snooze-fest, others see it as a way to wrangle any potential chaos. Regardless of which you are, having a schedule of some sort, even if it’s loose, can help you stay on top of your studies and homework.

One of the biggest mistakes you can make when planning your schedule is packing it so full of academics you miss out on life. It can be helpful to put all the non-negotiables in the schedule first. Non-negotiables are things that have to happen on set days or times. Once that information is filled in, you can add more flexible information, like study time, meals, physical activity, and recreation.

  1. Set a Study Time

There is no right or wrong time to study, just find a time that works for you and how you process information. If you are not a morning person, don’t throw study time on your schedule at 8am and expect it to work. You’ll end up frustrated. Instead, consider when you think the best and most clearly and block that time off to study.

Knowing that each day you have a certain amount of time blocked off for study and homework helps you establish a routine. If you’ve never done this before, it can feel awkward, but the human brain loves routine, so with time and consistency you’ll get accustomed to it and this will become an incredibly productive time of day.

  1. Organize Your Space

When organizing a study space, think of the things that are most helpful for you. Asking yourself some questions can help you set up the best space for you.

  • Do you need sound or silence to study?
  • Are there fragrances that help you focus?
  • Are there images, miniatures, quotes or other visual cues that help you switch gears to study mode?
  • Do you process best with pen and paper first or do you start with the computer?
  • Do you have favorite supplies that you use consistently when studying and not having them throws you off?

Learning is a multisensory experience, and the more you can engage your senses, the more effective your study time will be. Finding the things that work best to stimulate your creativity and memory and incorporating them into your study area will go a long way towards supporting your academic pursuits.

One of the beauties of college is the freedom to discover your unique approach to life and academics. By paying attention to what does and doesn’t work for you and playing to your strengths, you will find college life to be enriching and relevant rather than stressful and chaotic.
