Learning is a matter of committing both time and energy to your studies. The general rule of thumb is for every hour you spend in class, you should be spending two to three hours studying outside of class. However, some courses can be more demanding or difficult than others. The harder the course, the more time you should dedicate to it.
With so many welcome distractions online, managing your time effectively can be difficult. Thankfully, there are many resources on campus to help you out. The Counseling Center offers many different workshops about maintaining a healthy school life balance, including workshops on time management and procrastination. Follow their myUMBC for workshop times and locations.
Additionally, you might want to sign up for LRC 105 next semester. This course is great for students who want help with managing their time and to improve their studying. For more information about this course, please contact Delana Gregg.
