LRC Tip of the Week: USE YOUR FREE TIME WISELY!

Article *
Think of times when you can study “bits” of information or do some preliminary planning, as when walking, riding the bus, etc. Perhaps you’ve got a project that you need to complete, but have not yet planned out the steps to get there…..a few minutes of free time can help you work through the process by mapping it out in your mind. Perhaps you are in a line waiting? Perfect for routine tasks like flash card review of those slides for art history, or if you can concentrate, to read or review a chapter. While you are eating lunch, you can review your calendar and identify times in the coming week to do small portions of the bigger projects and assignments on your to do list. The bottom line is to put your time to good use. Having a plan can keep you focused and prevent you from getting overwhelmed — well worth the few minutes it takes to devise one!

For more ideas about planning your free time wisely, stop in to see a peer tutor in the LRC!

LRC TIP OF THE WEEK: Take Care of You!

Article *
This week’s tip is simply a reminder that when the inevitable “unexpected” happens (sickness, car troubles, etc.) responsibilities (such as work, studio projects, written essays, exam prep) do not stop. In other words, you need to be able to fit the unexpected into your schedule. When the unexpected starts to mess with your schedule (or if you want to plan ahead), stop in the Learning Resource Center to learn how to rearrange your schedule (so it doesn’t’ manage you – you manage it). Learning practical strategies for being flexible includes knowing who to ask for help. Don’t be shy.
