It would be nice if there were more than 24 hours in the day so you could get everything done. However, by getting organized, you often can find a few hidden hours in your day. At the beginning of each semester, look at the course syllabus for each class and make an overview of the semester. Use a calendar or organizer to fill in significant events, such as projects, presentations, meetings and exams. This helps you plan ahead and avoid forgetting any due dates. It also helps you to know when the busiest times are so you can plan your study times to be most effective for each class. Being organized can help you balance your recreational activities as well so you don’t end up throwing a party during your busiest week of school.
