Frankly – you’re about 3 years from needing to worry about it, and as a result it’s not worth anyone’s time talking about it. Make straight-A’s, the rest will be taken care of.

i am going to college and i need to plan my schedule and my time. Should i use some kind of online calendars or a program like outlook 2007 or like a paper planner? i am confused . please help me out.
Answer by lovelywhitely
Well, if you mean your classes/course schedule – that depends on if you got into the course you wanted/registered for. Also, sometimes the course time and location can be changed before the semester starts.
If you means to organize yourself of what to do, what needed to be done, etc. – then you can use a calendar/an planner to write things.
You can also use like the calendar from Microsoft Works if you have that program.

Question by Leisha: College Planning websites to help me plan and organize my four years?
I’m in college, and I’m wondering if there are any websites for planning your college career? The college board helped out for high school, and I’m trying to find a more sophisticated version for the college, work-bound student. When I try looking for something, I keep finding sites that try to help you financially with getting into college– not what I’m looking for right now…
Answer by jannsody
Although this site isn’t for planning all four years of college, it provides general career information: http://www.bls.gov/oco and can type into search.
The other postee made an excellent point about talking with a student advisor too.
Here is a website that has career and job searching tips. It may also have other useful tips: http://www.careerbuilder.com and can click ‘career advice’ or such.

Many freshmen students tend to fear college life experiencing difficulties in adjusting to rhythm of life in college. However, the only feeling they should have is joy, excitement, anticipation of something important and amazing to happen. But what they feel is homesickness and loneliness. But this tendency is easy to change. Get to know how it is possible studying the following guidelines.
First of all, a freshman student should look around. What does he/she see? What kinds of students surround him? It is unlikely that he/she will see bored or sad faces. The students in college are usually so busy that they have no time for melancholy. That is why they cherish every moment of communication with friends.
Having people to talk to and to share news is of immense advantage in college. The best way to find new people in college is to socialize with course mates and roommates. The people that surround a student everyday are more likely to become friends. So, one should never spurn people who are interested in him/her.
Research on academic life
It is obvious that college is more about studying than relaxing. So, never put off going to college to meet academic advisers, to find out classes timetable, and the like. Visiting library helps to orientate in college better. It is helpful to ask other students about the level of academic pressure and deadlines. Knowing what to expect, a student increases his/her chances to perform better.
Find a balance
Try not to run into extremes in academic and campus life. Never neglect studies but also allocate some time to socializing, sport, and entertainment. A good student should manage his/her time and be able to set priorities in his/her college life. This is especially true for freshmen students.
If a freshman follows these simple rules, he will never feel out of place in college.
