Time Management Time management is perhaps one of the most important skills students will learn during their undergraduate studies. Effective time management helps to alleviate much of the stress that is felt during the semester, especially when large projects are due or at exam time. Start by keeping a master calendar with all important dates listed. Look at it often. By keeping up to date with your calendar, you’ll be sure that deadlines and exam dates won’t sneak up on you. Create a daily to-do list. By listing out what you hope to accomplish and then marking projects off as they are completed you can be sure each day is as productive as possible. Don’t forget to schedule time to study!
