Navigating college life can be challenging, but with the right strategies, you can thrive.

High school really isn’t so bad compared to college because at least you have a parent or a teacher holding you accountable each day in high school. You tend to have classes daily. So you’re held accountable a lot more.

In college, you usually have a class once a week, and then you have seven days of no class and a ton of homework. So there were a lot of kids who dropped out of college, and the reason they didn’t space out their homework over the course of 7 days. They would leave 300 pages to do the night before and a lot of those kids ended up not coming back to school the next semester.

You don’t want to be one of those kids. What you really want to do is space out your homework. You have 300 pages to do over the week. Divide that by six; that’s 50 pages a day.

What makes college life hard? You don’t have a parent; you don’t have a teacher holding you accountable each day. So, you have to be your own parent. That’s what makes college hard.

Take care of the organizational skills, and you’ll be all set.
