Time Management
Time is the scarcest resource and unless it
is managed, nothing else can be managed.
Peter Drucker Author, Professor and Philosopher
of modern management
  • Time Management is a life-long skill.

    beyond college. You will be able to apply time
    management strategies to your career, personal
    goals and family life.

    meaningful way now, you will be able to reflect
    and grow with your time management philosophy as
    your life changes and grows.
  • Time Management is empowering
  • through time management
  • you will take control of your time.

How to get started
  • Keep a planner and keep track of events such as
    due dates for papers, projects, presentations and
  • How to choose a good planner
  • A planner to support student success should have
  • a yearly calendar
  • a monthly schedule
  • a daily schedule
  • room for to-do lists notes
  • and a pocket to use as a temporary filing
  • You should also have all important academic dates
    in your planner (start of classes, last day to
    drop a class, midterms,etc.).
  • See the Academic Calendar for important dates.

  • Make thinking about your time a priority.
  • Planning out a schedule takes time but it can
    save you time in the long run.
  • At the end of your day, review your schedule
    for the following day. If there was anything
    you did not accomplish, make sure you add it to
    the next days schedule or schedule it for
    another day soon.
  • In the morning, review your schedule again.
  • Make a to-do list for the day.
  • Carry your planner with you and
  • refer to it throughout the day.

  • Build a weekly schedule.
  • Take into account
  • class time
  • study time
  • work
  • co-curricular activities
  • and down time.
  • Build in time to take advantage of academic
  • meetings with tutors
  • going to the Writing Center
  • going to Student Academic Counseling, etc.

Create daily to-do lists.
  • Identify priority levels.
  • On your to-do list categorize your activities by
    importance. You can use numbers or any other
    symbols that work for you.

Make travel plans. On your to-do list think
about the different classes, offices or buildings
across campus you need to visit. Can you group
your to-do items into clusters by location so
that you dont waste time going back to the same
location twice?
Be flexible.
  • Even if you plan your time very well, there will
    be some days in which unexpected changes cause
    you to make adjustments. Leave room in your
    schedule for the unexpected. Dont leave anything
    to the last minute because if the unexpected does
    happen (your printer breaks or you lose class
    notes) you may not have time to recover.

Avoid Saying Yes When You Dont Have the Time
  • The president of your club asks you to take on a
    new responsibility or a friend asks you to cover
    her shift at work
  • First, think before you respond.
  • Assess what kind of impact this new
    responsibility will have on your schedule.
  • If it will take you way from the time you
    need to study, politely decline.

Click on the box that best completes the
following statement.
  • If your estimated number of hours of activity
    exceeds the total number of hours in a week, you
  • cut back on the number of hours you use for
    personal needs like relaxing, sleeping,
    grooming and eating.
  • consider dropping one or more of your courses.
  • prioritize your activities then see if you can
    spend less
  • time on the activities with low
  • save time by multitasking (i.e. reading while
    texting on your phone or studying while
    responding to emails).

  • cut back on the number of hours you use for
    personal needs like relaxing, sleeping, grooming
    and eating.

Incorrect To be successful, it is essential to
maintain a healthy lifestyle. You should not cut
back on these personal needs as they are
imperative to your good health.
consider dropping one or more of your courses.
  • Incorrect
  • This is not the best answer. While you may
    ultimately decide, in consultation with your
    academic advisor, to drop one of your courses,
    there are other options to consider first.

save time by multitasking (i.e. reading while
texting on your phone or studying while
responding to emails).
  • Incorrect
  • This is not the best answer. While multitasking
    may save you some time, it is not a good idea to
    text message or answer emails while studying or
    reading. Try to limit your distractions as much
    as possible when studying. Turn your cell phone
    and/or instant messenger off.

Answer the following question by clicking on the
appropriate box below.
  • Are you a transfer student?

Transfer Shock
  • Many transfer students indicate that acclimating
    to a new
  • campus environment is an overwhelming experience.
  • Adjusting to new social, psychological, and
  • demands can be challenging.
  • In fact, the term transfer shock is often used
    to describe a
  • temporary dip in a transfer students grade point
  • during his or her first semester.

Research suggests Although many transfer
students do indeed experience transfer shock,
most students are able to improve their grade
point average within a year of transferring.
(Diaz, 1992) (Hills, 1965) (Laanan, 2001).
UNC-Chapel Hill Offers Many Programs to Help
Transfer Students Succeed
Tar Heel Transfers (THT) Members of the THT enjoy
the opportunity to share the company of other
transfer students. This student-run organization

Work and Financial Responsibilities
  • Working while attending college can be very
  • There are many advantages to working while in
    college. You can gain invaluable experience and
    responsibility that may help you after
  • Many students simply have to work while in
  • The key is to find the number of hours you can
    work while still having enough to time to perform
    academically. This number can be different for
    every student. For some students, working 15
    hours per week is the maximum they can work
    before their academics start to suffer. Other
    students can work several hours more some can
    only work 5 hours per week.

Create a budget. Stick to it! Refer to it
What can I do?
  • Find the right job.
  • One that understands you are a student first and
    that can offer you the flexibility you need.
  • Resources on campus
  • Scholarships Student Aid can help you apply
    for aid, work study and scholarships.
  • University Career Services can help you find a
    part-time job.
  • Counseling Wellness Services can help you
    manage stress that may be associated with your
    financial issues.

Make Budgeting a Priority
What are you paying for? Is there any way to
cut back on your expenses? Can you reduce the
money you are spending on non-essentials such as
social activities, dinners, movies, coffee,
clothing, music, etc.?c.?
Answer the following question by clicking on the
appropriate box below.
  • Are you working 20 hours
  • or more per week?

While Attending College
It is NOT recommended that any full-time student
work a full-time job.
Full-time Student Status
  • 15 credits is considered a
  • full-time course load.
  • The time you spend in class combined with the
    time you spend studying should be equivalent to a
    full-time job.
  • Just as you would find it very difficult to work
    2 full-time jobs, you should not try to be a
    full-time student with a full-time job.

What if I need to work a full-time job?
  • Examine your perceived need to work.
  • Many students have to work to pay for
  • tuition, books and/or living expenses.
  • Make a list of your expenses
  • to determine exactly how much
  • money you need and, subsequently,
  • how much you need to work.

Use Time Effectively
  • Dont overestimate how many hours you need to
    work to have enough money to cover your expenses.
    You may be able to pay your bills while working
    fewer hours.
  • Save money during the year when you are not in
    school. Working extra hours during the summer and
    winter break can be an excellent opportunity to
    save for expenses during the rest of the year.
  • If you still find that you need to work
  • you may consider going to school part-time.

Remember if you drop down to part-time you must
stay at part-time status for at least 2 fall
and/or spring semesters.
Are you paying for other people?
  • Some students send money home to family members.
    Others pay for items for friends, boyfriends or
    girlfriends. These situations can be very
    stressful, difficult, and ultimately, detrimental
    to your education.
  • If you are paying for other people, reexamine
    your responsibilities and relationships to
    others. You may not be able to financially help
    other people in your life right now.
  • As difficult as it may be, acknowledge that this
    is your opportunity to be in college to gain an
    education that will help you for the rest of your
    life. In actuality, it is a very short period of
    time (only 4 years).

For some students, paying for other people or
sending money home is an unavoidable reality and
a fixed obligation. If this is the case, you
may want to talk to a counselor in Counseling
and Wellness Services about setting limits
without choosing one over the other. With a
counselor, you can develop strategies to
balance work, school and family obligations.
Academic Success
Tips for Academic Student Success
  • Prepare for class. Arrive on time for all classes
    and know your professors name. Complete class
    reading before the class.
  • Get to know your peers. Have a friend in each
    class you can call if you are absent or would
    like to study with someone.
  • Get to know your professors. Visit your
    professors during office hours and ask questions
    before, during and after class.

Helpful Hint Come to class prepared with at
least 2 questions from the reading. Try to ask
at least one question every class.
  • Go to class. This may seem obvious but nearly all
    students are tempted to skip a class at one point
    or another. Even if you are in a very large
    lecture course, you should go to every class.
    Professors often go over information in class
    that may not be covered in the reading and that
    youll need to know. Also, class participation is
    essential to your learning!
  • Seek a balance. You have many exciting social and
    academic opportunities at the university. It is
    important that you participate in both but seek a
  • Utilize university resources. Resources such as
    the Writing Center and Learning Center were
    specifically designed with you in mind! If you
    just go to class and go home, you are not making
    the most of your college education.
  • Experiment. Do not box yourself into one academic
    discipline particularly, if you are struggling
    academically. Dont be afraid to take classes in
    an area you never considered studying before.
  • Dont be afraid to change your mind. Most
  • students change their major at least once.
  • Just because you came to college wanting to
  • study Business, that doesnt mean you cannot
  • choose a different major now that you are here.

  • Helpful Hint
  • Make a schedule that allots not just for time in
    class but time outside of class to study.
  • Also, schedule your down time and stick to it.
    If a social event comes up during your study time
    try to reschedule the event or attend a different
    event during your scheduled down time.

  • Expect to be challenged!
  • Then plan accordingly.
  • Many students come to Carolina from high schools
    or community colleges in which they were top of
    their class. They may not be used to having to
    study so much or work so hard to achieve top
  • Many students at Carolina experience this. Keep
    in mind that all students must work hard and
    devote a lot of time to their studies at Carolina
    regardless of their past experiences.
  • Schedule regular study times for each week.
  • Carefully examine your syllabus to plan extra
    time for studying or writing when you have a test
    or assignment due.

Have you ever heard the expression the big fish
in the small pond becomes the small fish in the
big pond?
  • Have high expectations. Set goals for yourself
    and take pride when you meet these goals. If you
    fall short, do not berate yourself. Reflect on
    the situation and determine how you can be
    successful next time.
  • Dont feel pressured to make
  • a hasty decision about your
  • major or career.
  • Take responsibility. This is your
  • time and your education. It is up
  • to you what you make of it so,
  • take responsibility for your actions
  • and make informed decisions.

Click on the box below that best answers the
following question.
  • Why is it essential to attend every class even
    in large lecture courses?
  • Professors often go over information in class
    that may not be covered in the reading.
  • Class participation is essential to your
  • Professors may make announcements during class
    updating or changing the syllabus.
  • All of the above.

Study Skills
  • Introduction to Study Skills
  • Study Skills are processes that help you
    organize and direct your learning.
  • Learning or refining your study skills may
    result in becoming a more effective and efficient
    learner more in charge of your own learning.

  • how to learn...

Study Skills
  • Study Skills involve activities both
  • inside class and outside of class. They
  • include, but are not limited to
  • Reading effectively
  • Studying independently
  • Studying in groups
  • Participating in class
  • Taking lecture notes
  • Taking notes from reading
  • You should utilize multiple ways of learning. Do
  • not simply rely on one way of learning
  • (i.e. listening to class lectures). Support your
    learning by approaching the material from many
    different ways from notes, group discussions,
    readings, lab work etc.

In class
  • To help avoid distractions, sit near the front
    of the class. You're less likely to miss
    something important and there are fewer
  • Listen actively
  • Pay attention to the other professor's body
    language, facial expression and tone of voice
    these are all part of the message.
  • Don't let yourself be distracted by unimportant
    noises or interruptions.
  • Ask questions.
  • If something is initially unclear, dont give
    up. Stay focused and continue taking notes. You
    can ask the professor for clarification after
    class or during office hours.

  • Make a list of what you intend to study,
    prioritize the list, and stick to it!
  • Have everything needed for study handy
    beforehand. Don't waste valuable time looking for
    books, notes or other information.

  • Take an active approach to reading. Read with a
    pen in your hand.
  • Take notes, write down questions, highlight,
    underline, etc.
  • When reading, be alert to bold or italicized
    print. Also, read everything including tables,
    graphs and illustrations. Often tables, graphs
    and illustrations can convey ideas more
    powerfully than written text.
  • Get the main idea. Getting the main idea in
    reading is central to effective studying. You
    must learn what the author's central idea is, and
    understand it in your own way. Every paragraph
    contains a main idea. Find the main idea in each
    paragraph you read then write it down in the

When you recite, you stop reading periodically to
recall what you have read. Recall main
headings, important concepts presented in bold or
italicized type and what graphs charts or
illustrations indicate. Try to develop an
overall concept of what you have read in your own
Try to connect things you have just read to
things you already know.

Taking Care of OthersTaking Care of Yourself
(No Transcript)
Taking care of others/Taking care of yourself
  • College is a precious time.
  • It is time for your growth, learning and
  • Taking care of others (family members, friends,
    girlfriend or boyfriend) can take away from the
    time that you have to focus on your academics.
  • Make clear boundaries and stick to them.
  • Make time for yourself.
  • Help others but not by sacrificing yourself.
  • If necessary, explain to family and friends the
    importance of your education as well as the time
    and resources you need to devote to it.
  • Make a commitment to yourself.
  • Make choices for yourself not to please others.
  • This can be very difficult. Many students feel
    pressure from parents or other family majors to
    major in a particular discipline or follow
    particular career paths. You will perform best in
    a major and a career you choose for yourself.
  • Students often find it helpful to talk to a CWS
    counselor about balancing taking care of others
    with taking care of themselves.

University Resources
Taking Advantage of University Resources
  • Smart students take advantage of university
  • Taking advantage of university resources shows
    initiative, motivation and determination.
  • It is NOT a sign of weakness.
  • Students with 4.0 GPAs, with 2.0 GPAs
  • and everything in between go to the
  • Learning Center.
  • Undergraduates new to the university and
  • PhD students writing their dissertations
  • go to the Writing Center.
  • University Resources are not for people
  • with problems they are for everyone.
  • Remember
  • Professors have office hours for you. Go to

  • Teachers open the door,
  • but you must enter by yourself.
