Time Management

  In college, the responsibility for scheduling your time and making room for all you have to do rests squarely on your shoulders. One of the most serious mistakes you can make in college is to commit the error of thinking that you have “plenty of time” to get things done.

  Because your high school workloads were generally lighter than those you will encounter in college, and also because more of the work in high school involved simple memorization as opposed to true understanding of a subject, it was probably easy for you to “cram” the night before a test and still get a good grade. 

College is not like high school in this regard.
You simply cannot get by in college with
only last-minute efforts on assignments, and
thus you must learn to manage your time
