As college freshmen transition into the higher education arena, student life becomes increasingly heavy and complex with work, academic, social, athletic, and other demands that can be difficult to manage. Depending on the number of courses a student is taking in the semester, there will be competing priorities depending on each classroom's expectations and assignments to be completed. Helping students to learn how to plan and prioritize their commitments is a critical lesson. Through the guidance of their instructor, students will learn time management skills by thinking about time-wasting behaviors that contribute to the inability to manage time effectively.
